Advising Students

Academic Advisors

Academic advisors represent and interpret University policies and procedures to the students and help the students to navigate the academic and organizational paths of the institution. They assist students in scheduling courses so as to fulfill the requirements of the degree program. Advisors also maintain files on individual advisees to assist in academic planning.
