Advising and Academic Support

Academic Tutoring

The ACTCM Academic Support Administrator offers open tutoring on a weekly basis and coordinates review sessions for students on relevant topics. Students can make individual appointments with Andrea Natta, the Academic Support Administrator by email at

Formal review study sessions are offered free of charge for most classes that have a teacher’s assistant (i.e. herbs, formulas, and points courses) and for Comprehensive Exams.  

Should a student encounter academic challenges with a particular course, tutors are available to provide assistance for a nominal fee. Students who are required by the college to seek tutoring will receive this assistance at no charge. The Academic Support Administrator hires tutors and pairs them with students and evaluates the services each semester. 

Academic Advising

ACTCM provides individualized support for students as they plan a course of study and progress through the program. The main role of the Academic Advisor is to support students with academic questions and to assist students to progress through the curriculum in an orderly manner. Students can meet with the Academic Advisor if they are considering changing program of study, dropping or adding a class, taking a leave of absence or withdrawing from the program.Students are also welcome and encouraged to discuss academic or professional issues at any time with the Academic Advisor, Academic Support Administrator, the Dean of Clinical Education, or the Director of Student Affairs—all of whom maintain an “open door” policy.

Career Services

ACTCM has a dedicated career advisor to support the success of our graduates in establishing their careers. Students can make individual appointments with Sandra Williams, the Career Services Advisor, by email at
