Booth University College’s academic advising program focuses on student development and student success. Although you are in charge of reaching your academic goals, your academic advisor will help in whatever way possible. Your advisor will encourage you to consider larger questions about educational goals and will help you plan your course selection.
EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMIC ADVISING
At Booth University College, all of our academic advisors are our core faculty members – including program heads – so you’re guaranteed to be connected to a dedicated professor who is determined to ensure you start the year off right. They’ll also notice if you’re struggling during the year and will help you put a plan in place to address the challenges.
YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISOR WILL BE COMMITTED:
- To provide you with timely and accurate academic advising and information in a supportive environment;
- To support and enhance your learning and achievement;
- To develop links to help ensure your success through your program of study from admission to graduation.
YOU ARE A PRIORITY
During the first weeks of the academic year (or semester), your academic advisor will be available to meet with you and help establish goals for the first semester. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity and arrange this important meeting.
You are also encouraged to make an appointment with your academic advisor at any time during the semester if you need help. You should also meet with your advisor when making course and program changes, at the end of each semester, or when you are making choices for courses for subsequent semesters. Remember, when you are meeting with your academic advisor about course selection, bring a list of possible courses that you are considering to help make the meeting more productive.
