Adult Education Advising

Advising for transition.

Many of our students are the first in their family to attend college. Our Transition Coach, Heidi Davison, will be your guide to assist you and answer questions throughout the enrollment process.

Ms. Davison will assist you in completing the FAFSA for Financial Aid as well as help you find resources to eliminate barriers to your success. To fit your needs, two courses are available to introduce you to the college learning experience. The On Course class teaches learner-centered strategies that empower you to become an active, responsible learner while developing your personal skills. Student Connect, a Butler orientation class, introduces students to on campus resources to assist with their college experience.
