What is Advising?

Academic advising assists students in realizing the maximum educational benefit available to them by helping them to better understand themselves and in learning to use the resources at Andrews University to meet their special educational needs and aspirations. 

Academic advising should help students determine short- and long-term goals based on aptitudes and interests, and should help outline a course of study that will facilitate the attainment of their goals.

Academic advising provides all students the opportunity to develop an ongoing, individual relationship with an advisor in his/her field of study at Andrews University.
