Roberto Gonzalez and Natasha Alvarez in Academic AdvisingWhat is Academic Advising?
Academic Advising is the process of discussing majors, selecting classes and building a roadmap for academic success that occurs between an advisor and a student.

The Academic Advising Center at the University of St. Thomas provides students with access to a professional team of advisors that specialize in helping students identify and achieve their academic goals. Students should meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester and more regularly if they are having difficulty. Advisors may assist students with selecting or changing majors, degree planning, course scheduling and building plans for overall academic success.
