Undergraduate

The Office of Academic Advising provides individualized academic advisement to all students in the College. During the initial advising conference, the advisor will help the student (1) select the major which will lead the student to achieving career goals, (2) evaluate the student’s lower-division course work to determine whether prerequisites for the major have been met, (3) plan a tentative program of study for the student to follow which will lead to graduation in the desired major, and (4) provide the student with a written copy of this tentative program. The tentative program will be finalized when the student is fully admitted to the college.

Students are encouraged to visit the Office of Academic Advising to meet with an academic advisor as early as possible so that a program of study may be prepared. This will provide students with a well-defined set of program requirements and enable them to progress in an efficient manner toward the completion of a degree. The Office of Academic Advising is located in Bldg. 57/Room 1070, (904) 620-2530.

**Academic advisement is provided to all students in the college. Students’ failure to seek advisement has historically resulted in scheduling problems, incomplete certification requirements, and delayed program completion. The College cannot be responsible for problems due to students’ failure to consult with advisors.

 

Graduate

Graduate students are expected to meet as soon as possible with their assigned faculty advisor to determine appropriate course work for their desired major.  During the initial advising conference, the faculty advisor will help the student (1) select the major which will lead the student to achieving career goals, (2) evaluate the student’s baccalaureate level course work to determine whether prerequisites for the major have been met, (3) plan a tentative program of study for the student to follow which will lead to graduation in the desired major, and (4) provide the student with a written copy of this tentative program. The tentative program will be finalized when the student is fully admitted to the college.

Students are provided with the names, telephone numbers and office location of their faculty advisor in their acceptance letter.  Students with specific questions or concerns about university policies or regulations may visit the Office of Academic Advising located in Room 1070 of Bldg. # 57, (904) 620-2530.
