Advising Handbook

Department Overview

Academic advising and mentoring are important elements of the work here for faculty and staff. Students rely on their advisors to offer sound and consistent advice about college requirements, choosing courses, majors and minors, and in general, how to be a successful student. Being good advisors means, in part, being well informed. It is our hope that the Advising Handbook helps you to be just that.

The definitive source of information is the College Bulletin, or catalog.

The Registrar's Office also maintains a wealth of information on its Website.

This Advising Handbook takes information from those sources and directly from departments to help you as academic advisors.

If you have questions, suggestions, corrections, or comments, please do not hesitate to share them with interim dean of academic success Eric Jensen (, 610-328-8249).
