Students are assigned advisors when they arrive on campus. Each year, students may remain with their advisors or request someone new.
Advisors inform students of their grades, help them plan course selections, and address day-to-day issues. When necessary, they direct students to take advantage of school resources, such as peer tutoring, academic support, and professional counseling. Advisors often know students better than other faculty members and are the first point of contact for parents with questions or concerns.
