Academic Advising

Advising is an interactive relationship between an advisor and student that helps to identify and achieve short and long term educational and career goals. Advisors empower students to make appropriate decisions with regard to his or her interests, goals, abilities, and particular degree requirements.
 
Academic Advisors are faculty members or professional advisors who are prepared to assist and support students in their academic career. They work collaboratively with all student to help navigate the transition to college and monitor your academic progress.
