Student Life

At Sessions College, you have access to a team of Student Advisors who are here to support you in reaching your learning goals. Our Student Advisors are trained artists and designers who understand the learning process and workflow of design students.

We check in often with our students and want to hear from you as well. Student Advisors can be contacted with any questions regarding program orientation, academic advisement, course access, learning environment issues, or transcripts. We encourage students to utilize the tools and resources offered here to maximize the learning experience.
