Academic Advising



According to the National Association of Academic Advising (NACADA), academic advising is one of the critical components to progression and graduation.  In an effort to provide more comprehensive services to first-year students, first-year students began being advised through FYEP in fall 2013.  Centralized advising for the first year allows for a more streamlined communication between student and administration related to the registration process.  Students with under 30 credit hours are advised through the Academic Center for Excellence.  Each first-year student will be assigned to an advisor that represents their learning community.  Advisors will only have a caseload between 100-150 students.    


Benefits of Academic Advising:


First year students are registered for courses.  This ensures students begin in courses they need for their desired major.


Student academic progress is closely monitored.


Students are connected to a faculty member within their major/related course of study.


Students have a primary point of contact concerning any academic related questions or degree requirements.


Low caseload numbers for personalized advising experiences.
