Academic Advising @ University Park
Professional and Faculty Advisers
Academic advising is provided by the academic college in which you are enrolled. Your adviser may be a member of the faculty in your major or a professional adviser. He or she can help you to evaluate your educational plans, develop an academic program, and schedule each semester's courses. You should expect to be a knowledgeable participant in this process!
You will be expected to be responsible for your academic program, to initiate appointments, understand your degree audit, and be prepared with questions. Be sure that you understand your role and the role of the adviser. To find out who your assigned academic adviser is, use "Adviser Information" in eLion (through Summer 2016).
TIP: Don't rely on other students for official information or for course information. Student advice on rules, regulations, program requirements, and courses may be misleading, if not incorrect.
