2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog

Academic Advisement

Academic advisement is regarded by the University as an extension of the teaching function, and therefore it is an important responsibility of the faculty. Academic advisors explain the University requirements and assist individual students in building programs which satisfy these requirements. Also, the advisors communicate to the students, particularly freshmen, the meaning of higher education and its significance to the student. However, students are expected to read the regulations in the University catalog and conform to them. The student is responsible for knowing the regulations and policies and for meeting the requirements for a degree or certificate.
