Additional Support Services

Academic Advising

Academic advisement is a process where a faculty member or professional counselor works with a student to answer questions and offer guidance about academic programs and future career fields. The student/advisor relationship plays a key role in appropriate course selection, academic progression, and academic achievement.

If a student enrolls with a declared major, the assigned advisor is a faculty member from the academic major. If undeclared upon enrollment, a professional counselor from the Academic Support Services Center will serve as the academic advisor.
