Academic Advising

Our advising staff is dedicated to creating an environment that empowers students. We are devoted to quality academic advising in a welcoming atmosphere that is student centered and fosters collaboration. Our services are designed to teach students how to achieve their educational goals.

The Three Characteristics of Academic Advising:

  • Academic Advising fosters collaboration in which both the student and the advisor have responsibilities. 
  • Academic Advising is a method to help students to create an educational plan that is consistent with their life goals. 
  • Academic Advising teaches decision making skills to empower students to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.
