Academic Advisement: Advisement and Course Selection

What Is Advisement?

Each Armstrong student will have a professional academic advisor, a faculty or staff member who assists in several areas: choosing a major, exploring career options, responding to early alert concerns from professors and selecting courses for the following semester. The advisor gives advice: students must take responsibility for their own choices, for selection of their academic program, and for meeting university deadlines.

When Do Students Go for Advisement?

New Armstrong students will meet with an advisor during Navigate Armstrong, our new student orientation program. Continuing students may contact their advisors at any time, but they must meet at least once each semester to discuss course selection for the following semester.

Appointments are usually required during these busy times, so students should schedule them early.

Where Do Students Find Their Advisors?

Students will seek advisement in one of several places, depending upon their circumstances.
