Academic Advising supports undergraduate students by helping them to understand options and opportunities for academic programs of study, degree requirements, academic resources, and course selection. Advisors will work with students to:
- develop plans of study with clear pathways to achieve academic goals
- facilitate connections with faculty and academic support services
- facilitate connections with university resources including accessibility services, career services, and student affairs’ organizations
- provide workshops and individual and group training sessions covering a range of topics to ensure a successful academic and social transition to university life
Students are assigned an advisor during the enrollment process based off their major. All students must meet with their advisor each term before registration. Advisors complete the registration process for each student once they have met with an advisor.
Students may identify their current advisor through Banner Web or Degree Works.
The advising center services all undergraduate students, with exception to a few programs that utilize faculty advisors. Advisors are assigned based of the students declared major. Students are encouraged to meet regularly with their assigned advisor to ensure progression toward degree completion.
Students that have been accepted into a select group of programs and majors will be assigned a faculty advisor within your department of study. Faculty Advisors will work with you to develop a plan of study, select appropriate classes each semester, and provide guidance on experiential opportunities, internships, and career choices.
