Advisement of Students
All students with a declared major will be advised by a faculty member from that major department. The advising folder will be maintained by that department or college. All students who have not chosen a major are classified as Liberal Arts Studies (LAS) students. They and students in the Associate of Arts program, Community University Program, and non-degree students will be assigned an adviser by the Dean of Arts and Sciences. All Developmental Studies students will be advised by an adviser from the Department of Developmental Studies. Associate of Applied Science students will be advised by the College of Education, Department of Vocational Education. The Board of Regents requires that "effective advisement shall be credited toward retention, tenure, and promotion. It should be a specific topic of faculty evaluation" (Board of Regents' Policy Manual, Section 309).
