What is Academic Advisement?

Academic Advising is an opportunity to exchange information designed to help students reach their educational and career goals. Advising is a shared responsibility between an adviser and the student. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the student to make decisions about his/her life goals by creating a plan to reach those goals.

Academic advisers can assist in this process by helping the student understand options, determine resources and, when necessary, identify alternatives.

While students are urged to keep parents informed of plans and progress, the advising relationship uniquely is between the academic adviser and the student.

Just like you have a syllabus in a course, the Office of Academic Services provides an advising syllabus which will help you understand the academic advising process and your responsibility within that process.
