In order for the advising process to be successful, here are some tips to keep in mind.
An effective advisor will:
- Provide effective guidance to students regarding their education, career, and life goals
- Create a partnership between the advisee and advisor
- Help advisees plan their academic programs, identify internships and/or summer work experiences in preparation for their chosen careers
- Know important dates such as add/drop dates, last day to withdraw, etc.
- Know processes, such as Leave of Absences, Incompletes, etc.
- Be available to students
- Understand the core curriculum in addition to all major requirements
- Be aware of all campus resources
