Academic Advising

The goal of academic advising is to assist students in developing educational plans consistent with career/life goals and to provide students with the information and skills needed to pursue those goals. It not only involves telling students what they need to know, but also aims at enabling them to find things out for themselves. The University knows that academic success is often greater when students and their advisor share a good working relationship. It is important to know who your advisor is and to seek advice often, rather than meeting only when problems arise. All students have the right to high quality academic advising and the University has an obligation to ensure that academic advising is available to all students. Academic advising is not mandatory. Students are encouraged to utilize advising and are responsible for seeking advising. When seeing your advisor, please bring identification.
