Academic Advisor Notebook

Academic advising is an important element in students’ college experience.  Advising connects the students to the college and programs, thus influencing retention and graduation rates.  Further, academic advising provides a personal connection that students want and need for a successful college experience.

The Academic Advisor Notebook was compiled by the A&S Dean's Office to assist faculty in advising students on the changes to our general education requirements and those arising from our transition from quarters to semesters. Please click on the links below for further information.
