Academic Advisement

Work with an Advisor

Academic advisement is the reflective process of planning a student’s education, keeping in mind the College’s academic policies and degree requirements as well as the student’s choice of major, academic abilities, special interests, co-curricular activities, and professional and life goals.

  • Incoming freshmen and transfers are assigned faculty advisors from within their major department.
  • Undeclared majors are assigned to an advisor from the AAC or a volunteer faculty member.  After declaring a major, students are assigned advisors within their major department. 
  • If you do not know who your assigned advisor is, look under "My Profile" on NazNet or contact the Academic Advisement Center.
  • Make sure you understand the roles and responsibilities for both you and your advisor.
  • You can schedule an appointment to work with your advisor at any time, but you are expected to meet with them at least once a semester during the Advisement & Course Selection period.
