Advising Services in the College of Community and Public Service

Here are just some of the ways the staff in the CCPS-UAC can help you achieve your degree goals:

  • Degree Planning.  Academic Advisors help students make informed choices about degree and graduation requirements. They can help clarify curriculum, course content, and optimal course sequences. Advisors will also enhance student awareness of diverse educational experiences to further enrich the academic plan.
     
  • Goal Setting. Academic Advisors can assist students with the clarification of career and life goals; development of decision-making skills; reinforcement of self-direction; and evaluation of student progress toward established goals.
     
  • Outreach & Support. Academic Advisors can assist students with academic support needs through individual sessions, group workshops, and connections with educational resources across the university.
     
  • Policies & Procedures.  Students are responsible for their role in the academic process and navigating the university system. Academic Advisors can help clarify university policies and procedures to enhance the student’s ability to participate in the academic process.
     
  • Referrals. Academic Advisors can refer students to faculty mentors, other campus services and student success resources.
