The mission of the Office of Advising & Retention is to provide academic advising and support services to assist and retain students within and beyond the freshman year and ensure that they are adequately equipped with the resources necessary for their success.
We provide academic advising to all first year and first time students at Our Lady of the Lake College. We assist with scheduling classes, tracking and maintaining appropriate curriculum plan progression and providing general support and guidance throughout our students’ matriculation.
We provide general support to our students by maintaining a supportive and collaborative relationship in which the student is provided the appropriate resources necessary for their success and is ultimately empowered to persist in achieving their academic goals. We also serve as a link for students to connect with other college departments that may assist them with their academic and personal needs.
