Students enrolled in programs at the College of Education as primarily supported by faculty advisors. Each student is assigned to a faculty advisor. Students are responsible for learning about program and degree requirements, availing themselves of available university resources, and tracking their own progress, amongst other responsibilities. Faculty advisors are responsible for supporting the success of their advisee. Typical advisor responsibilities include approving a student’s academic program of study, providing program information, clarifying program requirements, policies, and procedures, assisting in identifying appropriate resources, and upholding the high academic standards of their program and the institution. Students should contact their program’s administrative assistant if they need support identifying their faculty advisor. Students with concerns regarding academic advising should contact the associate dean for academic and student services; contact information is included below.
To learn more about program and degree requirements, access your program's handbook. Each program typically posts handbooks on the program's website. You can also get a copy by contacting assigned faculty advisors or the program administrative assistant for your program.
