Keeping you on the right track to graduation

Advising is much more than just building a schedule; it's an ongoing partnership between the student, advisors and advising staff to promote your success and help you graduate in a timely manner.

Academic advisors form partnerships with students in the following ways:

  • Assist students to set short- and long-term goals.
  • Provide career information regarding the degree fields of interest.
  • Inform students about university policies and procedures important to a student's progress.
  • Draw upon a comprehensive knowledge of campus resources and assist students in referral and access to such services.
