Your Role as an Advisee
Academic advising takes the advisor and the advisee working together to achieve optimal success for the student. Share information with your advisor about interests, goals, educational, and career plans. Share personal information that has a bearing on your academic careers, such as the number of hours spent at work, responsibilities to family, financial aid status, and any limitations are all necessary information to advisors.
Be familiar with the Catalog and the Student Handbook. These are vital sources of information. Keep a record of graduation requirements. Be familiar with deadlines. Be willing to contact the appropriate student support services available on campus.
Be prepared for meetings with your advisor, particularly when registering for next semester. You should review what courses are still necessary for your program and have an idea of what courses you would like to take. Alert your advisor immediately if you begin to have difficulties that are affecting your class work or continued enrollment. Be an active participant in your advising sessions!
