Shoreline's six academic advisors for international students

International Student Academic Advisors are faculty advisors who help students make important decisions about their academic and future career plans. Our advisors have all lived or traveled overseas, and know what it feels like to experience a new language and culture.

By working with an advisor, students are able to make the connection between their academic interests, degree requirements, and career opportunities. Advisors can also help students learn more about U.S. culture and the Seattle area.

Students can make an appointment to meet with an advisor or see an advisor at express advising, which does not require an appointment. Learn about what you can do in appointments and express advising below.
