Academic Advising

professor helping a student

利记体育’s academic advising involves a developmental teaching process in which an advisor and an advisee (student) enter into a collaborative, growth-oriented relationship.

  • All full-time students who have declared a major are assigned a faculty advisor during their first term. 学生在 开学前 participate in group advising and are assigned an individual advisor when declaring a concentration during the second term of their sophomore year.
  • All full-time students who are undecided/undeclared are assigned an academic advisor from the Academic Success Center during their first term.
  • All full-time or part-time non-traditional students (i.e. 21 years old or older) who are beginning an academic program are advised by the Office of 先进的 and Continuing 教育.

Your faculty advisor will help you:

  • With program planning, course selection, and scheduling
  • To develop, clarify and evaluate your educational plans and goals
  • To identify and explore alternative opportunities
  • To assess the potential outcomes of your decisions
