Every student at Moravian University has a faculty advisor. Each first-year student is assigned an advisor to assist in the planning of academic work and in the selection of a major, generally toward the end of the first year.
When a student has selected a major, a faculty member in the appropriate department becomes the student's advisor and continues in that capacity unless the student elects to change the major to another area of study. At the time of registration for courses, the student consults with the advisor about the selection and sequence of courses as well as about career plans and further study.
Advisors are provided to assist students in planning their academic programs. They are not authorized to change Moravian's established policies. Each student is responsible for ensuring that his or her academic program complies with the requirements for the major, the program of general education, and any other degree requirements of the University. Any advice at variance with established policy must be confirmed by the Office of the Provost in writing.
