Academic Support Services
In the College of Business and Innovation, academic advising is a shared responsibility between the student and the adviser. The academic adviser will provide the student with accurate information about educational options, plans of study, policies and procedures, career advising, and referrals to specialized services when appropriate. The adviser will assist the student with continual monitoring and evaluation of the student's educational progress. The student will maintain frequent contact with their adviser, and will assume final responsibility for course scheduling, program planning, and the successful completion of graduation requirements.
