What You Will Learn Through Academic Advising

By engaging with academic advising, you will: 1) proactively participate in your degree planning and course selection, so you can make informed, independent decisions about your program; 2) discuss and learn how your academic and career goals align with your overall life goals and how to actively pursue these goals; 3) learn to interpret academic policies and procedures; 4) discover the many student services that are available to you throughout your degree, learning when and how to engage with them.

This site aims to provide you with helpful information, whether preparing for your appointment or planning ahead. Please review the information throughout and, when you are ready, book an in-person or virtual TEAMS Academic Advising appointment.
