Advising, Appointment, and Accessibility Information
What is Academic Advising?
Academic advising is a dynamic relationship between a student and advisor. At the center is a shared responsibility for an education plan that incorporates personal, social, academic, and career considerations. Academic advising focuses on identifying life goals, acquiring skills and attitudes that promote intellectual growth, and becoming academically successful.
All academic advising begins with a professional advisor in the UARC and at a designated point (varies by major/college) students transition to a faculty advisor.
Academic advising is one of the most important resources a student can take advantage of to complete their degree in a reasonable length of time.
