Academic Advising

Advising in the College of Education

Academic advisors can assist you with progression toward degree completion, degree and licensure requirements, navigating university technology and resources, course selection and registration issues, exploring teaching areas and endorsements, explaining requirements for Advanced Standing, and many other things.

We strongly encourage new students to meet with an academic advisor in their first quarter to develop an academic plan that will guide you through your program. Academic advisors are trained to assist you with any difficulties you may encounter and may make appropriate referrals as needed.
