Our Mission

The mission of the Academic Advising Program is to assist students with all aspects of their academic planning while providing a foundation for appropriate academic decisions throughout their undergraduate studies.

The Academic Advising Program does this by helping students:

  • Develop educational plans consistent with their interests, abilities, and goals;
  • Identify courses to enhance skills and interests, and choose a major field of study;
  • Understand course choices within available course offerings;
  • Become familiar with and follow academic policies, rules, procedures, and requirements;
  • Maintain the required scholastic standards by identifying strategies and resources for academic success;
  • Make timely and satisfactory progress towards a degree;
  • Direct students to appropriate campus resources.
