Set Your Educational and Professional Goals

Cornerstone DC students work with a team of program staff that support them and provide guidance throughout the semester. Staff facilitate the identification and achievement of the student's educational and professional goals.

Cornerstone DC students work with program staff and First Year Advisors over the summer regarding course selection and registration, and preparation for the MFP.

Academic Advising

Ashley Barnes is the Cornerstone senior advisor. In May, you will work with Ashley and first-year advisors to determine your course selections. Throughout the summer, Ashley and first-year advisors will continue to work with you and answer questions that you may have.
