Academic advising is an educational process that facilitates students’ understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education. It fosters intellectual and personal development towards academic success and lifelong learning.

Academic Advisors provide academic counseling on matters of curriculum, course selection, degree requirements, and university policies. They evaluate student problems, academic and administrative, and refer students as necessary to appropriate student services offices for additional counseling.
