Academic Advising

Welcome!

The Advising Department would like to wish you a warm welcome.  We are glad you’re here and can’t wait to work with you!

Primarily, our advisors are here to help you with selecting the appropriate courses throughout your degree program, succeeding in those courses, and graduating in a timely manner.

Other areas where we frequently assist are:

  • academic and professional goal setting
  • time management
  • resource referral
  • understanding your plan of study
  • understanding the Academy’s academic policies

How to Book an Advising Session

Advising sessions are booked using Microsoft Booking.  To access the booking page, log in to My Student Portal and click on the Book A Session link (in the Student Services tab).

A how-to guide for booking an advising session using Microsoft Booking can be found here.

Advising sessions are scheduled for 30 minutes and are conducted via Teams or over the phone.

When to Book an Advising Session

If you are a newly accepted student, you will need to book your first advising session and get advised prior to submitting your first registration.

Advising sessions are required once per semester. General Education Advising sessions are suggested more frequently, approximately once per month.

Who Is My Advisor?

You can locate your assigned advisor’s name in My Student Portal by clicking on the Who Is My Advisor? link (in the Student Services tab).

If you are an undergraduate student, your General Education Advisor will advise you through completion of all general education (freshman/sophomore) course requirements. Upon completion of all general education course requirements, you will transition to working with your assigned Faculty Advisor.

If you are a graduate student, you will work with your Faculty Advisor throughout the entirety of your program.
