Academic Advising

Make your college experience the best it can be

The Academic Advising Office supervises the implementation and efficient operation of the advising program, which is an essential component of the University's personal approach to education. This program helps students assess their educational development, determine new educational objectives, select appropriate learning experiences, obtain encouragement and support, and evaluate their academic and personal achievements.

As part of our mission, we work to offer assistance to faculty so that they may be better able to help students grow in self-awareness, develop realistic educational plans, and coordinate educational experiences.

As active members of a learner-centered community, we do our very best to serve as a liaison between students and faculty to lessen tensions that arise from academic and personal conflicts which could impede students’ academic progress.

The Academic Advising office is located in room 70 of Griffin Hall.

Our goal is to make your college experience the best it can be!
