What is academic advising?
Academic advising is a process in which students and academic advisors work together in order to achieve the student’s educational and personal goals. Typically in individual meetings, the student and the advisor collaborate to create a broad understanding of program/major requirements and university and DAAP policies and procedures, as well as to develop course schedules in order to fulfill degree requirements and student interests. Academic advisors can also identify additional campus and community resources as needed to enhance the student’s tenure, both personally and academically, at UC.
