Academic Advising

New Freshmen

All new freshmen will meet individually with faculty members to finalize their fall semester course schedules during freshman orientation. Those students who have declared a major upon enrolling at Lake Erie College will automatically be assigned to a faculty advisor within their area of study. Each student is required to meet with his or her advisor every semester for schedule clearance prior to registering for courses in the upcoming term. A staff member from the Office of Academic Advising, or a designated faculty member, will assist exploratory students with the course selection process until a major has been declared. For more information, please contact the Office of Academic Advising at 440.375.7111 or at

New Transfer Students

Transfer students are provided with a degree audit based on the evaluation of transfer credits. A student who has transferred to Lake Erie College will receive a copy of his or her transfer credit evaluation soon after being admitted. The student should review this evaluation immediately to be certain that all credits earned at other colleges and universities have been considered. It is the student's responsibility to send to the Lake Erie College Registrar's Office an updated copy of any transcript listing credits that were not completed at the time of the student's original transcript evaluation. The degree audit serves as a plan for degree completion. Transfer students will complete their initial selection of classes during their first meeting with a member from the Office of Academic Advising, and will be assigned a faculty advisor in their field of study early in the semester to assist in future course selection. For additional information, please contact the Registrar's Office, at 440.375.7010 or at

Admission to law school is largely determined by your undergraduate grades and your scores on the Law School Admission Test. Your pre-law advisor will advise you on the best ways to prepare for the LSAT as well as providing you with guidance in planning for and registering for the test, preparing your law school application and personal statement and identifying the law school that is just right for you.

Pre-Veterinary Medicine

The preparatory path to veterinary school does not involve a specialized "Pre-Veterinary" major. Colleges of Veterinary Medicine require students to complete courses in biology, chemistry and math in preparation for veterinary school. The required courses for admission to veterinary school can be integrated into many majors. Students may choose a major in the sciences such as chemistry or biology. More information on Preparing for Veterinary School.
