The Academic Advising Center is a part of the Office of Recruitment & Retention Services and is responsible for assisting students in various aspects of program, career, and course selection. Academic Advisors work with students to determine the best educational plan on an individual basis. Typically students' academic advisors are a part of the faculty from their program of study.
