Academic Advising Defined 

"Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an advisor. The intent of this relationship is to support the student in the development of meaningful educational goals and plans that are consistent with the student's personal interests, values, aspirations and educational potential. Academic advising utilizes the full range of institutional resources and refers students to the appropriate academic support services. To advise is to facilitate decision-making and problem solving, explore options, provide recommendations, and assist the student's situation (i.e. course placement, academic needs, etc.) within the context of academic advising."
