Academic Advising is a collaborative process between the student and the advisor, designed to help the student reach educational and career goals. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to make decisions about life goals by creating a plan to reach those goals.
Advising update due to COVID-19 (3/11/2020): Due to the current situation with the coronavirus, President Barchi recommends that we offer remote advising and minimize/eliminate in-person meetings. Many deans and advisors are already offering options for remote advising through their appointment links below.
- Student Responsibilities
Students are expected to prepare for advising in advance by bringing a list of questions and courses you are considering taking.
- Review any previous advising notes.
- Review FORMs that may help meet your needs.
- Use Degree Navigator and your Departmental Handbook to review your degree requirements.
- Use the Schedule of Classes, WEBREG, and Course Schedule Planner.
- Define a primary plan to achieve your goals but also have an acceptable alternative.
Make an advising appointment, arrive on time, and cancel 24 hours in advance if you cannot make it.
- Advisor/Dean Responsibilities
The advisor's or dean's responsibility is to help students become self-sufficient, solutions-oriented individuals while still providing them with empathetic service. Students who have complex or critical issues should see a dean instead of an advisor.
An advisor or dean may provide assistance in helping a student learn how to:
- Make practical academic plans and decisions.
- Discover a range of options available.
- Think through the consequences of the student’s own choices.
