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 Advising Center practices a personal, developmental, and intentional advising model to empower students to make informed decisions regarding their personal and career goals, plan of study, and educational development.  Students must consult with their academic advisor and be granted registration clearance before registering for courses or making changes to their academic schedule. While advisors support students, it is imperative for each student to be familiar with academic policies and assume responsibility for their own academic program.

Undeclared/Exploratory Studies majors are advised by professional academic advisors in the Academic Advising Center.  When an Undeclared/Exploratory Studies student is accepted into a new major, a new academic advisor from the declared program of study will be assigned by the chairperson of the student’s new major.
