Academic Advising plays an essential role in helping students formulate sound educational and career plans based on their interests, abilities and academic classification.

Students who work with an Academic Advisor increase their chances for satisfaction and success in completing an academic degree. Proper advising can help students grow intellectually while expediting their degree completion. Undergraduates and graduates are advised in the collegial unit of their major.
