Modified Advisement and Registration Plan

Modified Academic Advising and Advance Summer Registration Plan

The faculty and staff at Chattahoochee Valley Community College will continue to support students’ academic success during the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is important that you check your college email regularly for updated information concerning classes, advisement and summer registration.

Advisement Week

Advisement week will be conducted virtually April 6-10 and will continue until summer classes begin on May 21. Virtual advising involves conducting advising sessions using email, telephone, or online meeting apps. This style of advising gives both students and advisors the opportunity to discuss and plan classes for completing graduation requirements.  The following registration procedures should be followed:

    • Dual enrollment students will be advised and registered for summer classes by the Dual Enrollment Coordinator and high school counselor.
    • Transient students, once you are admitted to the College, the Admissions Office will provide you with a student identification (ID) number and instructions on how to register for the approved transient class in Pirate Web via email.
    • Advising Appointments for Current Students
      Since faculty are working remotely, students should email their faculty advisor to schedule an advisement appointment. If you do not know your advisor’s name, it is located on your degree plan which may be retrieved from Pirate Web.

      After your request for advising is received, your advisor will email you detailed steps on how to schedule an appointment based on your preference (email, phone, or online meeting).  If you cannot make your scheduled advisement appointment, contact your advisor immediately to reschedule.

  • Advising Appointments for New Students
    Any new students who have submitted an Application for Admissions will be notified by the Office of Student Development and Success to schedule an appointment for advising.  Schedules will be developed during the appointments.   Please refer to the financial aid link for directions on financial aid awards.  Modified Financial Aid Plan.

Virtual Advisement Tips

It is important to be prepared for your advisement appointment. Prior to your appointment, review your degree plan, prepare a list of classes that you are interested in taking, and write down any questions you may have about classes or graduation requirements.  Course schedules may be accessed on the Web site as follows http://www.cv.edu/course-schedule/.  To adhere to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), your virtual advising appointment should be done in private to ensure personal academic information is not divulged.

Registering for Classes

At the end of your advisement session, you will have the classes you will need to take during the summer semester and you will be web authorized to register online beginning April 13.  You will register for your classes through Pirate Web. Training videos on registering using Pirate Web are provided in the Blackboard Student Success Class for Online Learning in the Advising and Registration tab. If you have problems registering, contact your advisor.  Additionally, tech support is available at ithelp@piratemail.cv.edu.
