Who's My Advisor?

New students to the college and students who have not been enrolled for one year or more should start with the Admissions Office or County Campus. After completing Admission requirements, students will see a New Student Advisor to schedule first semester classes.

Current students are assigned to Academic Advisors by program and mostly by last name. In the table below, locate your department, program, and last name grouping. Advisors can be contacted by phone, e-mail or by visiting their offices. Faculty advisors generally have a sign up sheet on their office door for advisement appointments. If you cannot determine your advisor's name after reviewing the table below, contact:

Transient students, please review the Transient process at www.ptc.edu/transient.  If you have completed all of the steps outlined and need further assistance, please contact the Admissions Office at (864) 941-8369 or admissions.a@ptc.edu.

We strongly recommend that students contact their advisor either by phone or e-mail to schedule an appointment. Due to class schedules, clinical schedules and labs, most faculty members are only available during their posted office hours.
