The Basics of Academic Advising


An academic advisor is one of most important people in a college student's educational experience. Academic advisors provide academic support, help with course scheduling, help students identify and use campus resources, and provide career guidance and options.

Every student is assigned to an academic advisor based on degree program. Students should look in their Campus Connect account for the name of their academic advisor and contact him/her as early as possible for a brief handshake and hello. It's important this connection start early because students need to know their advisor.

These advising pages provide students with an opportunity to learn more about the advising process (what it is and how it works) and how to utilize academic advising to enhance their academic success.
