Academic advising is a process where students and their academic advisers meet periodically to discuss progress, plans, ideas, and needs as the student pursues academic and career goals. These meetings provide a time when students may talk with advisers who are knowledgeable about available resources to aid student progress. Students are assigned advisers based on area(s) of interest at the time of registration. Students who declare more than one major are assigned advisers in each major. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisers during the year to discuss academic progress, problems, or educational and career goals. Students may request a change of adviser by filling out the appropriate form available at the Academic Resource Center (ARC), Student Success Center (SSC) or Registrar’s Office, obtaining the necessary signatures, and filing the form with the Registrar’s Office.
