Why Academic Advising?
The mission of University College Academic Advising (UCAA) is to promote student learning and development in first-year, second-year, and transfer students with fewer than 53 credit hours. By providing professional and ethical advisement that assists students with making informed decisions regarding their educational, career and life goals, UCAA helps students evaluate and clarify interests and talents; understand available resources, curriculum plans, academic standards, and graduation requirements; become engaged in their education as they learn to navigate the University; and develop and achieve educational plans consistent with personal and career goals.
To ensure success and empower students to become lifelong learners in a global society, academic advisors share responsibility with advisees and collaborate with faculty, staff, and administrators to uphold the mission and standards of the University.
If you ever have any questions, please visit Academic Advising in room 205 of the Alexander-Dunn Building or call (919) 530-6129. We are always happy to address your concerns.
