Advising Matters!

Academic Advising is at the core of student success in the Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) program. Your Multidisciplinary Studies advising team advocates for your success and you will work collaboratively with them to achieve your personal and educational goals. We’ve integrated academic advising into our curriculum to ensure you will have the opportunity to connect with your advisor regularly. We encourage you to communicate with your advisor as often as necessary, and remember, they can serve as a first point of contact in directing you to the resources you need to be successful in completing your degree.

What is Academic Advising?

Academic Advising is a partnership between you and your advisor to discuss and plan for your academic success.  It is an on-going process. You and your advisor develop and track your educational plans. These plans should be formulated after exploring your career and life goals and accounting for your values, abilities, and skills.
