Akua Oppong-Anane PhD, academic advisor, with mechanical engineering students and their baja buggy projectAcademic advising is a critical component of your educational experience, because it empowers you, the student, to make critical decisions about your career goals.

Advisors are here to do more than help you choose your courses and stay on path to graduation.  They are also here to help to determine if you are in the right major, explain career opportunities that may align with your skills and interests, and help you explore how your decisions may impact your future.

Students should make an appointment with an advisor each semester when course registration opens, or as needed for advice and direction regarding your career path.  Please refer to the academic calendar to find out when registration opens each semester.

As a college student, you are ultimately responsible for the choices you make regarding your education.  When it comes to advising, you should schedule regular appointments with your advisor and be prepared for the meeting by researching the curriculum and courses offered.  It is helpful to work through your schedule in advance of your advisor meeting, think about what your academic goals are, and calculate your GPA. You also should ask for additional help if you need it.

Please note that continuing students and transfer students are advised through faculty.  Please contact enrollment services if you are not sure who your advisor is.  You can also find your advisor in Oredigger Web.
