Why do you Need an Advisor?
Your advisor provides curriculum and program information to create a plan to make sure you take the right classes at the right time. There is no better way to save time and money than to stay on track!
Advisors help you develop your academic goals and determine appropriate course load
Advisors understand that sometimes things don’t go as planned. Sometimes students may feel reluctant to seek assistance for issues they may be having. Advisors explain helpful policies and work collaboratively with students to help develop a plan for moving forward. You have a better chance of successfully resolving your situation the earlier you seek assistance.
While you do need to plan early for registration, we want you to know that you can schedule an appointment at any time of the year. Advisors prepare for your meeting by reviewing your academic record prior to seeing you. Planning early and seeing your advisor regularly will help you develop a relationship and understanding with your advisor. Our goal is to help you succeed as you navigate your way through college.
Advisors help you determine when to apply for graduation and make sure all academic requirements are satisfied.
