Academic advisement is essential to a successful educational experience. Your academic advisor will assist you in selecting courses for your degree program, and in areas such as career counseling, study skills for academic success, and time management. Once a student declares a major in a pre-professional program, an academic advisor is assigned from his/her department. Students are required by the university to meet with an academic advisor at least once every semester. Advisement for the fall and summer semesters is done in April and spring advisement is done in November.
The Office of Academic Orientation and Advisement, located in Memorial College Center, Room 101, advises all undeclared majors. Advisors provide advisement regarding core curricula, transfer course work, transient studies, majors and career choices. Students are required to declare a major by their 45th credit hour.
Career Services, located in Compass Point Annex, building 7000, can provide assistance to students in all areas of career development and the job search process. Students can obtain assistance in selecting a major, gathering occupational information, investigating career paths through individualized career advisement and computerized career guidance.
The office of the Coordinator of Recruitment and Retention is located in Ashmore Hall, Room 107. Students in the college who are experiencing difficulties that are impeding their academic progress are encouraged to seek help from this office.
