An education advisor works with high school and college students to help them make academic decisions that will prepare them for future success. Those who work with high school students may offer advice on which courses to take, when to take college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT, how to fill out the Common Application, how to apply for financial aid and which colleges or training programs to consider based on their qualifications and future aspirations. Advisors who work with college students may consult with them about course selections, major choices, career possibilities and networking opportunities.
An education advisor is a consultant or academic counselor for college students or students who are entering college. As an advisor, you may help students explore different majors, discuss their career path, choose classes and complete the enrollment process. You may work with students throughout their college years to handle academic problems, make decisions regarding major changes and plan for their continued education or entrance into the workforce.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), school and career counselor jobs (which includes education counselors) were predicted to grow 11% from 2020 to 2030, faster than average for all occupations. However, hiring may be dependent on state and local budgeting restraints.
One option is to get a job as a school counselor in an elementary or middle school. In this job, you would help students deal with mental health problems, classroom behavioral issues, social challenges and other issues that can affect their wellbeing and academic success. For this job, you would need to complete a master's degree program and pass a licensure exam to work in a public school. Alternatively, you could direct your counseling career toward a completely different area, such as marriage and family therapy, where you would work with clients to help them deal with a wide range of issues that affect their relationships. The minimum educational requirement for this career is a master's degree.

The Sylvia Hack Boyer Center for Student Services supports undergraduate students in the College of Education and Health Professions. The center offers student advising and coordinates all student success initiatives and services. Our team of advisors and specialists helps students navigate their college experience, supporting them all the way through graduation. The team also can assist with post-graduation planning and success. BCSS was established in 1994 through a generous gift from Sylvia and Tommy Boyer.
Mrs. Boyer taught in the Fayetteville and Amarillo, Texas public schools and was an instructor at West Texas State University in Canyon, Texas. Throughout her life, she sustained a strong interest in children and education.
The Boyers established seven endowed scholarships across campus in the Alumni Association, the Razorback Foundation, the School of Law, and the colleges of business and of education and health professions.

TEAL advisors will accommodate walk-ins as much as possible, but making an appointment is recommended. Prospective students may meet with any available TEAL advisor and can schedule an appointment by calling the TEAL front office at 704-687-8725 or contacting the advisor assigned to their last name directly. Current students are expected to meet with their assigned advisor unless exceptional circumstances prevent this from happening.

In-person and virtual appointments are available. Students can select their preferred format in the location drop-down menu in Connect.

Virtual appointment confirmation messages in Connect will include a link to the meeting, and advising documents will be shared electronically by advisors before or at the start of each appointment.
Students who need to cancel an appointment should do so in Connect as soon as possible so that the time can be made available to others. Students who do not show up for two back-to-back appointments during pre-registration advising (October and March) without canceling beforehand will be unable to schedule another appointment through Connect without first speaking with their advisor.
All undergraduate education majors begin as pre-majors (e.g., Pre-Elementary Education) and have an assigned advisor in TEAL. Pre-education majors may meet with their advisor as often as needed but must meet at least once per semester in order to have their registration hold removed. The month leading up to registration (October for Spring, March for Summer/Fall) is the busiest time of year for TEAL advisors, so students are encouraged to make their appointments early.
Current pre-education majors can schedule an appointment with their assigned advisor in Connect (accessible through my.charlotte.edu). Prospective pre-education majors can schedule an appointment by calling the TEAL front office at 704-687-8725 or by contacting the advisor assigned to their last name directly. 041b061a72
