Although each student has ultimate responsibility for becoming familiar with and meeting graduation requirements, the College believes that conscientious and well-informed advising on an individual basis is an important part of the academic program. Each student is assigned an advisor from the faculty or administration whose responsibility it is to help plan and supervise the student’s academic program and to be available on other matters. An academic advisor approves the student’s schedule of courses at registration and should be consulted with regard to any subsequent changes.
Academic advisors work closely with the director of advising, the dean of the College, the associate dean for undergraduate academic affairs, the dean and associate deans of students, the University counselors, and the registrar. Students are frequently referred to these and other offices for advice and assistance.
