Academic Advising 

Our office has identified the necessity of academic advising to be purposeful, intrusive, and holistic in order to be effective. As an essential component of a successful higher education experience, it is vital that the advising office work in collaboration with other campus partners as active retention officers.

Intensive advising allows the advisor to promote student development throughout their academic career and prepare the student to become their own free agents; for a lifelong of learning and personal development. By encouraging students to be active participants in their academic career planning the advisor's role can often be interpreted, as a mentor, in promoting student success by encouraging open dialogue. These efforts are to create the student's vision of their higher learning experience and guiding them according to what is proven to work best in their favor.

Academic advising is a process that assists students on a journey to the development of their education and career goals.

Critical desired objectives include:

  • Student Growth and Personal Development
  • Academic SuccessOvercoming
  • Academic Setbacks
  • RETENTION
  • Attending YOUR Graduation Ceremony
