Everett College Advisor Portal

Everett Community College did not have an efficient means for academic advisors to easily audit and provide recommendations for direct-transfer students entering Washington State universities.

This was a solo project in which I determined what the core audience, community college academic advisors, needed to efficiently advise students transferring to Washington State universities. As part of this project, I created an online portal to help academic advisors facilitate an audit of a student’s current course work.
