What is Academic Advising?
Academic advising is one of the most important services that a college campus can offer. Academic advising at UTB is an educational partnership between an academic advising specialist and a student designed and targeted for student success. An academic advising specialist can help a student make the transition from high school to college and navigate as smoothly as possible through the many challenges and adventures of college life. By providing critical information regarding university policies and procedures, an academic advising specialist can help the student make essential decisions about his or her academic career. An academic advising specialist can provide important information regarding programs of study, degree requirements and critical campus resources available to students. Visiting with an academic advising specialist periodically can pave the way for student success and ensure that the student meets his/her ultimate goal-graduation.
