Academic Advising

All new Cameron University freshmen begin their academic careers in the Academic Advising Center. Your advisor’s top
priority is to see you succeed academically. We don’t just help you pick the right classes. Your advisor can also help you
choose the right major to fit your goals, understand university policies and get you in contact with the right academic support services on campus.

Appointments

To provide the best, most complete and accurate academic advising, we work with students on an appointment basis. This scheduled time gives your advisor the opportunity to review your transcript, current course schedule, degree plan and current academic progress. Taking all these factors into account, we are able to help you make the best decisions for your upcoming semesters.

Advisors have daily office hours where they can help with emergency academic issues, as well as course drops/withdrawals.

Mission

The Academic Advising Center helps prepare students for success in scholastic, personal, and professional life in the academic setting by assisting students in development of skills to define and achieve their academic goals.

By partnering with support staff, administration, and academic department faculty, the Academic Advising Center works with students to identify the appropriate major for their stated goals and create individualized educational plans for academic success. Using this approach, Academic Advising Center staff will:

  • Build collaborative relationships with students,
  • Provide timely and accurate information about academic programs,
  • Make appropriate referrals to campus resources,
  • Emphasize the idea that “ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans and life goals rests with the individual student.” (NACADA, 2003)
