In the Know: The Advising Relationship

Students are equal partners in the advising process. As an advisee, you are ultimately responsible for your academic and career decisions. Academic advisors are best able to assist you when you:

  • devote time and energy to reflecting on and clarifying your values, abilities, interests, and goals;
  • maintain contact with your advisor at relevant times during the semester (e.g. registration, midterm);
  • adequately prepare for advising sessions by reviewing the university catalog and course offerings; and
  • write down your questions to make sure you don’t forget to cover something important at your meeting.
