Academic Advising and College Counseling
Every student has an academic advisor or counselor, who is here to support students in their educational growth and guide them through program requirements. Your assigned counselor or advisor appears on your schedule and on your Degree Audit Report (DARS). Students should work closely with their academic advisor or counselor so that educational goals are met. It is very important to meet with your academic advisor or counselor each semester to ensure that you receive ongoing advice regarding satisfactory academic and career progress. Students who have concerns that cannot be addressed by their assigned advisor are always welcome to meet with a counselor.
