A&S Advising

An academic advisor's role is to provide advice and guidance appropriate to advance each individual student's educational goals and plans. An advisor is an educator, very much like a faculty member is in the classroom. 

Advisors endeavor to inform, support, and encourage each student in a manner that the advisor deems appropriate to educate that particular student. It is recommended that students meet with their academic advisors regularly in order to ensure appropriate degree progress.
