Advising Support

Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an academic advisor. The intent of this collaboration is to assist the student in developing meaningful educational goals that are consistent with personal interests, values and abilities. Although many individuals on campus, including academic advisors, may assist the student in making decisions and accomplishing goals, the academic advisor is granted formal authority by an academic unit (college, school, department) to approve the student's academic program of study and assist the student in progressing toward the appropriate degree.

The institution, academic advisor and individual student each have a role in the advising relationship (see Advising Roles & Responsibilities). Learn more about academic advising at the Advising Resource Center website.
