About Academic Advising
Advisors are academic mentors who notice what is happening to their advisees, pay attention to their academic progress, and help them work towards completing their degrees and identifying and fulfilling their academic goals.
Advisors help students to develop academic plans compatible with their interests, abilities, and goals; design a course of on- and off-campus study; meet degree requirements; grow intellectually and personally; and make the most of their K education. New students are assigned to an advisor linked to their First-Year Seminar.
Departmental Student Advisors (DSAs) provide a student perspective on majors, minors, and concentrations.
