Academic Advising

Education Majors

The Office of Student Academic Services in the School of Education (SOE) provides advising services to current and prospective students in the field of education.

Advising is not and should not be limited to interaction between a student and his or her assigned advisor.  Students are encouraged to take advantage of faculty and other professionals' expertise. The best decisions for addressing complex problems are based on a thorough consideration of available information. Students are encouraged to seek out a number of opinions and perspectives.
