The mission of the Academic Advising Office is to empower students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are consistent with their academic, personal, and professional goals through direct service to the student and collaboration with faculty and other campus resources. All academic advisors provide a variety of services to students and faculty including developmental advising, four-year planning, selecting majors, academic probation counseling, substitutions, workshops, and summer registration. While many staff members have a special focus area, all advisors will address issues or concerns related to general academic advising.
