Student Success Center

If you are having difficulty in a class or with any aspect of your academic work, your professor and your advisor are the first people to consult. If you think you need extra help or support beyond what they can provide, consider visiting the Student Success Center in Campus Center Room 137. The Center offers academic success specialists as well as various resources for success.

Course Registration and Scheduling

Course registration activities occur at several times during the year and always in consultation with a student’s advisor. Students receive a mailing from the Office of Enrollment Services each semester that describes registration policies and procedures. You can also visit Self-Service for current course offerings.

An Academic Advising Syllabus

The academic advising experience can be considered a “course” like the courses that a student takes for credit towards their degree. The Office of First-Year Students & Students in Transition has produced an academic advising syllabus that outlines responsibilities and expectations for advising.

Its contents include:

  • Description and philosophy of academic advising
  • Expectations of the student and expectations of the advisor
  • Recommended strategies and activities for freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years.
