Academic Support


Academic Advising

   ^ Top

Academic advising is considered an integral part of a student’s academic experience. Prior to beginning their first semester, all matriculated (degree-seeking) students are assigned an academic advisor, generally a faculty member in the student’s major. The academic advisor and the student will work together to evaluate the student’s educational development, select appropriate courses of study, and attempt to meet the student’s educational goals. Advisors are available to guide and support students, but it is the responsibility of each student to be familiar with academic policies and programs and to assume responsibility for his or her academic program.

Exploratory Studies / Undeclared majors are advised through the Academic Advising Office. When a student is accepted into a new major, a new academic advisor will generally be assigned by the chairperson of the student’s new major.

Students must consult with their academic advisor before registering for courses or making changes to their academic schedule. Advisor approval/registration clearance is required on all course requests and change-of-schedule forms.
