Responsibilities of the Advisor

Advisors have the responsibility to advise their assigned students; they are expected to help their advisees understand their academic strengths and weaknesses, plan course schedules, set goals, and use resources and the support services of the University.  However, they are not expected to make decisions for advisees or to engage in a personal counseling relationship.

Students have the responsibility for making decisions about their academic programs and for following through on those decisions.  Students should be prepared when they come to advising meetings by drafting their course schedules, reviewing relevant information in the Schedule of Classes, the Bulletin, or other pertinent documents, and by bringing their questions and areas of concern.

Once a student has discussed their course selection with an advisor, the advisor has three options.  The advisor may give the student their PIN, sign a completed paper registration form, or the advisor can register the student online.  The advisor is also required to sign all forms such as change of program (drop/add), and change of major.  In these two cases, the signature of the advisor does not indicate approval or denial of any action, but does confirm that the advisor had the opportunity to discuss the action with the student and offer his or her best advice.  There is one exception.  If the action of a registration or change of program (drop/add) form causes the student to register for an overload or underload, the advisor may deny the request if it is deemed to not be in a student’s best interests.
