Using the Advisor Center
What is the Advisor Center?
The Advisor Center is part of the Faculty Center, a Self-Service area in BiONiC, where you can see information about your advisees including current and past schedules, grades, test scores and transfer credits.
How to access the Advisor Center?
From your Bionic Landing Page, click on the Advisor Center tile.

In the Advisee Student Center you can see your advisees':

- Advisers (including their Dean)
- Contact Information
- Academic Requirements Report - select from credential drop-down and then click on the arrows >>
- Course History
- Unofficial Transcript - select from credential drop-down and then click on the arrows >>
At the top of the Student Center under the student's name, you have the option to change advisees and select a new advisee from the drop down.
If your advisee has transfer credit, the information will appear on the transfer credit tab. This includes Test Credits which transfer for credit like the AP tests, IB tests, and A-Levels. Information about which test scores transfer are available at the Registrar's Website. (Starting in Fall 2015, test credits are not posted until the student requests the units based on need, this does not affect their ability to help for placement or prerequisites.) Test scores available for credit are also visible in the students requirement report.
Note: We do not post the details about the individual transfer credits. All courses transferred are listed as "Transfer" and are assign the number of units transferred. For example, if a student takes two courses in the Summer the transfer information will read 2.0 units and both courses will be lumped together. Individual grades and course title are not available.
