The University values the connection and relationship between the student and academic advisor. The Academic Advising Center coordinates the academic advising and registration of new students, undergraduate and graduate, and provides information and assistance to students applying for credit for prior learning.
Each student is assigned an academic advisor within his or her major to assist with educational planning, academic advising and registration. Students who are undecided about their major or seeking to change their major may receive assistance from the Academic Advising Center in exploring various fields of interest, developing a plan of study for their educational goals, and/or selecting a major.
The Academic Advising Center also provides new students a transcript evaluation for previously earned credit that includes general education and major requirements fulfilling degree requirements. In addition and guidance is provided to enrolled students seeking credit from nationally recognized assessment programs (AP, CLEP and DANTES) or credit for non-traditional learning experiences.
