The Office of Academic Advising serves all students with Academic Advising concerns and inquiries, even though all students are assigned a faculty advisor. Only students who are declared as an undecided get advised by a member of our staff in our department. The Office of Academic Advising also processes mid-term reviews, class room visits, academically sanctioned students, and the early alert system.
Although the Academic Advising Office may work with students who are on good academic standing, our target population are students who have earned GPAs less than 2.0, the College’s defined level of acceptable academic performance, and find themselves on an academic standing of warning, probation, suspension, or dismissal.
Academic Advising assistance for these students is provided through individual sessions with a staff member of the office. These sessions give students an opportunity to discuss specific strategies to achieve greater academic success, or they may be used to identify resources and referrals to meet their challenges. A larger number of students, however, are assisted through the programs and departments, such as, the Tutoring Center, Student Affairs and Learning Communities to name a few. Our purpose is to assist students in becoming academically successful and realize their educational goals.
