Advising Expectations and Student Success

Academic advising plays an essential role in helping students formulate sound educational and career plans based on their interests, abilities, and academic classification. Meeting with an advisor can help students transition to college life, choose a major or minor program of study, provide academic support referrals, assist with career exploration, and much more.

Students are expected to come prepared to their advising appointments. In order to do so, it is important for students to understand what is expected of them, as well as what they should expect from their academic advisor.
