Our Academic Advisors embrace a holistic approach and strive to challenge students to engage in and achieve academic excellence, create and attain goals, and understand the important role and impact education plays in transforming their lives.

Current students should check in regularly with an Advisor during the academic year.

New students who have completed The Steps to Enroll should attend a 2024 Fall Semester Brainerd Campus Programs New Student Registration Session or a 2024 Fall Semester Staples Campus Programs New Student Registration Session. Registration sessions provide students guidance in selecting classes and programs, provide an opportunity to meet CLC faculty/staff and learn about helpful campus resources, services and student life activities.

Current and new students may contact CLC Advising at or one of the Advisors below with any questions. PSEO students: Any of the Advisors below with Associate of Arts listed are able to assist you.
