Academic advisers are assigned in the freshman year by the students’ major department or the Academic Services Office. Some departments may reassign their students to different academic advisers during the students’ sophomore or junior year. Secondary education students are assigned academic advisers by the department of secondary education/foundations of education in consultation with the content area department. Exploratory program students are assigned academic advisers by the Academic Services Office.
It is the academic advisers’ responsibility to aid their advisees with their academic and educational plans. The advisers are not responsible for making certain that their advisees graduation requirements have been met. This is the sole responsibility of the students.
