Academic Advising

The goal of the College of Education Advising Center is to assist in preparing highly qualified teachers to serve the evolving needs of the education profession in the state and across the country. Advisors provide academic support for all students interested in CoE majors, including current and prospective students, and participate in recruitment activities. Advising takes a holistic approach to student success providing mentoring with a focus on retention and diversity to prepare students to serve others.
