Role of the Student
We believe deeply that students should take responsibility in their educational experience. Those responsibilities include:
- Learning how to access, use, and check their university email often. This will be the primary method of communication from your advisor.
- Maintaining communication with your advisor throughout the semester as necessary.
- Coming to each advising appointment prepared to ask questions and discuss concerns. Please bring all related materials (paper or electronic) to advisement appointments, including, but not limited to, a list of potential courses, completed forms, etc.
- Knowing how to navigate the Progress Report so you can identify which requirements you have completed or still need to complete.
- Knowing important dates and deadlines (registration, drop/add, final exams, etc) as listed on the University’s Academic Calendar.
- Accepting responsibility for your decisions and actions (or inactions) which affect your educational progress and goals.
- Becoming familiar with campus resources, such as the Office of Academic Advising and the Center for Student Success.
