All students in the Biology Advising Center are assigned to an academic advisor. Students are welcome and encouraged to schedule an appointment with their academic advisor on a regular basis not just in the weeks proceding the registraton process.


Academic advising goes beyond the clerical functions of scheduling classes and preparing degree plans. It is a decision-making process in which the sharing of information between student and advisor promotes responsible and appropriate choices and facilitates a successful academic experience.


Good academic advising assists students in clarifying personal and career goals, developing consistent educational goals, and evaluating the progress toward established goals. Academic advising utilizes the resources of the University and refers students to the appropriate academic support services.
