What is Academic Advisement?

Academic Advisement is an educational process by which students and their Academic Advisement Professional work together to develop the students’ understanding of their academic and personal development toward success and lifelong learning. Throughout this collaborative process, students learn to set and attain academic goals, overcome personal and academic barriers and select appropriate courses required for their major. Students are encouraged to develop a strong connection with their Academic Advisement Professional and make an advisement appointment as early as possible to avoid potential registration delays.

What Happens if Students DO NOT receive Academic Advisement?

Without comprehensive academic advisement, students run the risk of not progressing academically if inappropriate courses are taken during a semester or module. Through the process of advisement, students will clarify their academic and career goals, become more knowledgeable about specific graduation requirements, internship/scholarship opportunities and accurately plan their schedules each semester.
