Every undergraduate student is assigned an academic advisor to provide ongoing support and helps ensure academic success and timely graduation. The relationship between a student and his or her academic advisor is one of shared responsibility. While students are ultimately responsible for the choices they make in college, the University realizes that in order to make informed decisions, students need the mentoring and advice of academic advisors and others in the University community.
Academic advisors work with students to develop and execute educational plans that are aligned with the student’s personal and academic interests, goals, and career plans.
Academic advisors also help students choose (or change) majors, select and register in appropriate courses, get connected with academic support services such as tutoring and success coaching, explore study abroad options, and participate in career exploration through activities such as internships and undergraduate research experiences.
