Academic advising allows students to plan University experiences and coursework to 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 assisting 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. Academic advising from the Office of Academic Support Services is also available to all students by appointment or on a walk-in basis. Students who are considering transferring, changing majors, or who need specialized assistance should contact an academic advisor in the Office of Academic Support Services.
Prior to registration, students with fewer than 30 completed credits, students without a declared major, and students in certain programs (as designated by the department chair) are required to meet with their advisor to review their schedule. It is the advisor's responsibility to check off the advised student in WebXpress so that registration will be enabled for the student. All students, regardless of major or year, are strongly encouraged to consult with their advisor prior to registration. After registration, students should submit their signed registration form to the Registrar's Office as verification of advisor approval of courses.
