Advising Students

Academic advising resource documents are available through mycentral. (See Academic Advising at Central). From this site you can access an advising handbook, study abroad advising guides, four-year plans for each major, and general information.

The goals of academic advising are to:

  1. Provide accurate information about educational options, requirements, policies, and procedures.
  2. Assist students in keeping accurate records of progress toward graduation. However, the student has the ultimate responsibility of keeping track of records and requirements.
  3. Assist the student in understanding and reaching the goals of a liberal education as defined in the Mission and Goals of the college.
  4. Develop in the student a sense of responsibility for educational progress.
  5. Help the student clarify personal values and goals.
  6. Assist in planning educational programs consistent with the student's interests and abilities.
  7. Direct and guide the progress of each student within an academic major.
