School of Art undergraduate students should meet with your academic advisor, Maria Robertson, at least once a semester in order to ensure you are on track in your degree plan as well as to check your progress toward graduation.

Information for Fall 2021 advising:

  • All advising appointments will be virtual via MS Teams for Fall 2021
  • No walk-ins/drop-ins will be available this semester– please email Maria at for questions and schedule adjustments
  • Limited in-person appointments – email Maria to discuss possible in-person options

Although it is important to meet with your faculty advisor regarding discipline-based course work, internships, experience in the field, and professional development; it is necessary to meet with Maria Robertson to discuss university policies, major requirements, remaining credits towards graduation and for an overall discussion to ensure you are progressing in your degree.

Your academic advisor and your faculty advisor are both here to assist you as you progress through your degree, but it is important to know that they serve different functions and address different areas of your education. Both are valuable resources for your success at Kent State University, so schedule time to see both advisors once a semester.
