What is Academic Advising?
The University of Arizona recognizes academic advising to be a critical component of the educational experience of its undergraduate students. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals and career plans. While academic advising occurs most visibly in these individual relationships, a broad network of professionals, faculty, staff and students exists in support of the Institution's overall advising mission. The University acknowledges its obligation to provide students with accurate and timely academic advising, delivered through its academic departments and colleges, as well as through additional units and colleges devoted to specific student populations such as undecided, transfer, and pre-professional students, freshmen, and those with disabilities.
As an institution, the goals of academic advising include helping students:
- clarify their life and career goals;
- develop suitable educational plans;
- select appropriate courses and complementary educational experiences;
- interpret institutional requirements;
- enhance their awareness of available educational resources (such as internship opportunities, honors, and tutoring programs);
- evaluate their progress toward established goals;
- assist them in completing degree requirements in a timely manner;
- develop decision-making skills;
- reinforce their self direction;
- seek out and use support services in the institution and the community;
- collect and distribute data regarding student needs, preferences and performance for use in making institutional decisions and policy.
