ADVISING

Advising services can be divided into to parts active and proactive.  Active advising is composed of the more traditional elements of advising.  These are your registration or pre-term meetings with students.  Topics include appropriate classes to take, checks to make sure students do not need services, and connecting them to information or departments as needed.  Proactive advising includes early semester check-ins, monitoring course engagement, and communication with instructors concerning at-risk students.
