In order to provide students with the accurate and timely information in regards to their academic careers, both the Academic Advisor and Faculty Mentors offer assistance in slightly different areas. A student's Faculty Mentor can offer great advice about what the classes are like, what is covered in a course and what former students have shared about their experience in the class. Faculty mentors are also resources for career planning information and possible internships.
Academic advisors compliment the mentor's knowledge by advising students on what classes are available, clearing them for graduation, assisting with scheduling or registration issues, and providing academic policy and procedural information as needed. Additionally, advisors are available to help track students' degree progress and offer referrals to helpful student services on campus.
