Scope:  Who is Covered by this Policy?



Most members of the faculty serve as academic advisors to students who are assigned to them by the department chair or designated assistant. Students usually remain with their adviser throughout their undergraduate career or so long as they continue a major within the division and department of the adviser.

Besides advising students on immediate academic problems and long-term academic programs, advisors also discuss with them the vocational and career opportunities and opportunities for graduate study in the field of their major, as well as the scholarships and fellowships available to them. They also write recommendations for students applying for jobs or to graduate schools.
