Mission of advising
The mission of academic advising in the School of Education is to assist each student in developing and implementing an academic plan designed to meet his/her educational, career and life goals in conjunction with meeting degree program requirements. The advising process is one of shared responsibilities between students and advisors.
How are students advised?
Undergraduate majors in the School of Education are advised at each campus accordingly:
Located on the first floor of Guyton Hall Annex, students are advised through the Student Advising and Field Experience Office (SAFE). Our centralized advising unit allows students to establish appointments or walk-in to meet with an available advisor during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
*During priority advising and registration, students are required to schedule an appointment time to meet with an advisor. Students will be notified by email and an announcement placed on the School of Education home page. The link for scheduling an appointment is: www.securedata-trans16.com/ap/umschoolofeducation1/index.php?page=10
