The Student-Advisor Relationship

Academic advising is more than just schedule planning; it is a developmental and collaborative process. Academic advisors provide resources and appropriate referrals for well-informed decisions, but students must take ownership of their education. Advising is most productive when students arrive prepared with questions and follow up on recommendations, which may include reaching out to campus and community partners.

Opportunities to connect with your advisor:

  • Schedule changes during add/drop
  • Academic or personal concerns 
  • Course withdrawal
  • Major exploration 
  • Degree planning
  • Course registration
