Academic Advising

The focus of academic advising in the ASC is to provide advising services to undeclared, General Studies (BGS), and Pre-Nursing students. ASC's advising program places an emphasis on serving as a student advocate, demonstrating a caring attitude, listening to the needs of advisees, assisting students with making connections to appropriate university resources, facilitating the course selection process, supporting advisees in setting short-and-long term goals, and guiding students in making career and academic decisions based on their personal goals. The academic advising unit also serves as a resource to advisors campus wide, providing support and guidance to faculty and staff advisors. The ASC advising program assists with academic advisement and registration at New Student Registration sessions, creates and maintains the Academic Advisor Handbook, advising website, advising newsletters, and coordinates advisor development workshops/trainings.
