Academic Advising - About Advising


Academic advising at the College of Saint Elizabeth is dedicated to student persistence and achievement, and to advancing the positive transformation of all students through life-long learning, personal and social responsibility, ethical empowerment, and the development and engagement of knowledge and skill.

Definition of Advising

Academic advising is a joint responsibility between the advisor and the student. The purpose is to create an atmosphere of openness, caring, and concern where meaningful communication and trust exist. Academic advising provides proactive assistance to all students in identifying course requirements, career interests, and setting career goals. It is rooted in constructive listening, and attempts to hear all aspects of the student's concerns while assisting the student in clarifying values and goals. It also helps students in academic difficulty recognize possible causes of their difficulties and suggest alternative courses of action.

In addition, academic advising encourages students to become involved in campus organizations, refers students to important campus resources, and explains College academic standards, policies, and procedures in sufficient detail to provide students with accurate information while maintaining the strict confidentiality of student records. The primary responsibility is to help the student advisees succeed in College, and to make them aware of all educational opportunities available to them.
