Academic Advising

Advising and educational planning is a collaborative effort between a student and an advisor. Advisors aid students in career and educational planning, explain degree requirements, assist in choosing a program, transfer planning, facilitate registration and academic difficulties, and assist through the financial aid process. Advisors also make referrals to academic support services as necessary. Effective advising is the responsibility of both student and advisor.

Students are assigned to an advisor during their first semester of enrollment. Before meeting with your advisor, please familiarize yourself with the degree program you are interested in. The educational plans will show you what courses are required to complete your program.

Students are required to make contact with their advisor prior to registration for the upcoming term. Students are also required to contact their advisor to withdraw from courses.
