Advising Expectations

A collaborative effort between student and adviser.

Academic advisement is a collaborative effort. Your adviser will guide you, but it is ultimately your responsibility to register for courses and complete all degree requirements.

Your adviser is expected to provide:

  • accurate and timely information about University policies, procedures, and requirements
  • guidance in exploring your academic options and examining your educational goals
  • assistance in course selection and scheduling
  • assistance in completing academic forms, e.g., Action Request, Petition Procedures, Study at Another Institution/Study Abroad
  • reviews of your academic progress throughout your time at Adelphi
  • confidential referrals concerning academic and personal matters, as needed

You are expected to:

  • examine your academic and personal goals prior to initial and subsequent meetings
  • take responsibility for your choices and decisions
  • develop a tentative list of courses prior to your advising appointment
  • arrive promptly to all scheduled meetings
  • be familiar with the requirements for graduation and for your major
  • provide timely notice about any academic problems
  • be familiar with the policies, procedures, and requirements detailed in the Undergraduate Bulletin
