Educational Services Division

Ensuring Your Success - Academic Advising

Welcome DeskThe success of each student is the top priority at IRSC. The Educational Services Division encompasses a variety of services to help students benefit from their college experiences from the first visit to the College to graduation. Services include: Student Advising, Educational Program Planning, Financial Aid, Veterans Affairs, Admissions and Records, Curriculum Support, Career and Transition Services, Student Disability Services, International Student Advising, and Student Success Services/Enrollment Center. These services ensure that each student’s program of study will be uniquely suited to his/her interests and abilities.

After an initial counseling and program planning session with an academic advisor, students may register online at or by phone to schedule classes that will meet degree requirements.

Continuous evaluation and updating of the curriculum ensures that the programs of study at IRSC are current and relevant, with courses that provide a firm foundation for career success and continued education. IRSC graduates are well-prepared for transition to upper-level programs, including the opportunity to earn a Bachelor’s Degree at IRSC. To assist students planning to continue studies toward a Bachelor's Degree, the Educational Services Division evaluates university specifications for credit transfer and advises students on the courses available at IRSC that fulfill these requirements.

In addition to academic advisement and career counseling, the IRSC Health and Wellness Center, IRSC advisors, and branch campuses have resource materials available to refer students in need of personal counseling to appropriate agencies within the four-county service district.
