Academic advisement allows students to plan college experiences and coursework to better achieve personal and career goals. Each student is assigned an academic advisor who specializes in the selected major program. Advisors assist in course scheduling and are a source of information about their respective disciplines and areas of interest or experience. Although it is the responsibility of the student to fulfill all requirements for graduation, the advisor is an expert who can provide background knowledge and information to assist the student's own decision-making. Advisors can also discuss options for students wishing to continue their education after earning an undergraduate degree.
Students who are considering transferring, changing majors or who need specialized assistance should contact an academic advisor. All students are strongly encouraged to consult with their academic advisor at least once each semester. Academic advisors can also provide assistance to accelerated students as they plan schedules based on the sequence of what courses will be offered.
