Academic Advising & Retention Center
Welcome to the Academic Advising & Retention Center's (AARC) website! AARC provides a wide range of academic services to undergraduate students. The Center coordinates academic advising activities among undergraduate colleges and academic departments for undergraduate students. All degree-seeking undergraduate students must meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes until they have 90 hours and an Application for Graduation on file in the Office of the Registrar. AARC advises all Exploratory/Generally Undecided students and helps these students plan for their potential major.
The mission of AARC is to provide students with the academic support necessary to achieve their academic goals. We provide advising, student success initiatives, and training on advising for faculty and staff. Please review our website and the many services provided by AARC, The Learning Center, and the Best Expectation Programs.
