Eastern Idaho Technical College
Each semester an advising day is held where faculty advisors meet with students from their
program to check their progress toward degrees and to plan future courses. Students are
reminded about advising and advising day through an email from the registrar’s office with
sufficient notice to make appointments with their program-advisor.
Other EITC offices supplement the advising process – specifically, counselors from the
counselors from the Center for New Directions and the Bridges program.
Primary advising lies with the program advisor, but the other offices are helpful to students
with special concerns.
