University Academic Advising provides a common advising experience for all first-year students and those who are not directly admitted into a professional school. The academic advising program addresses academic requirements and policies, choosing a program of study and identifying and exploring educational and career goals.

As generalists on freshman issues and specialists in specific programs, advisors ensure that students identify with both the university and their college/school/department. This arrangement provides a common advising experience for students during their critical first year.
