What is "Academic Advising"?

Answer(s)

A

Academic advising is the process of assisting students in the identification and pursuit of academic or applied technology goals. Advisors help students select appropriate courses to achieve those goals. Advisors also familiarize students with degree requirements, help students interpret test and placement scores and monitor student progress toward graduation. They also assist students with clarifying major and/or career options, and help students achieve their educational goals by utilizing resources available on campus. Finally, advisors assist those students who plan to transfer and continue their education with taking appropriate courses and getting information on different colleges & universities.
