Academic Advising

The needs of adult students often differ from those of traditional age undergraduates. The College of Professional and Liberal Studies offers adult students a supportive environment in which to begin and complete their education.

Academic advising is the process in which you, the student, and advisor work together to set goals for your academic life. PLS advisors work one-on-one with students to establish goals and set class schedules in conjunction with their life and their responsibilities. It is a collaborative process, and ultimately, you—the  student—are responsible for your educational experience.

The Academic Advising site is designed to help our new and returning students find relevant information, useful and appropriate resources, and prepare for academic deadlines.
