Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Advising & Student Services
Location: Bowman Hall 105
Office Hours: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday-Friday.
Advisors not available between noon and 1:00 pm.
Our goal is to promote student success by creating an on-going partnership between students and advisors. Academic advisors provide knowledge regarding degree requirements, campus resources to assist students in understanding the value of a liberal arts education.
Kent State University undergraduate students are required to meet with their academic advisor in the college once per semester. In the College of Arts and Sciences, all students are advised by professional and faculty advisors. Professional academic advising office is located in 105 Bowman Hall or 120 Wright Hall for students participating in the Learning Community. Faculty advisors are housed within each individual academic department.
Meeting with your academic advisor will ensure that you…
- Stay on track academically (help you review and update your GPS plan)
- Discuss your ideas for future coursework
- Remove your registration pin allowing you to enroll in upcoming semester courses
Advisors are available on a drop-in (no appointment needed) basis Monday-Friday May 2-May 31 from 9:00-11:30 am and 1:15-4:00 pm. Drop-in advising will not be available the afternoon of May 21, and the morning of May 29 due to professional development events.
