Academic Advising

Academic Advising

Advising Services

Advising is a comprehensive program facilitated by college personnel who share responsibility with advisees for student success. The advising relationship is an ongoing process involving open communication in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Each program coordinator will serve as an academic advisor to students. Each student will be assigned an academic advisor.

Advisors facilitate the academic and personal development of students, enhance their academic performance, and ensure students’ progress toward graduation by assisting them in achieving the following objectives:

  • Choosing, clarifying, planning and achieving educational and career goals;
  • Identifying academic skills that need to be acquired or enhanced to achieve educational goals;
  • Understanding and following the College’s policies and procedures leading to graduation;
  • Completing and processing appropriate forms necessary to maintain ongoing academic progress; and
  • Accessing information and guidance regarding post-baccalaureate studies
Students should seek and obtain academic advising on a regular basis throughout their academic careers. Minimally, advising revolves around the following five key points:
  • When the student enters the College, either as a first-year or transfer student,
  • When the student enters the major or minor,
  • When the student experiences academic difficulty, including probation,
  • When the student chooses courses for a new semester and formulates a senior capstone project, and
  • As the student prepares to graduate and move beyond his or her studies at Sattler.

What is the student independently responsible for?

  • Knowing and completing all degree requirements.
  • Attending new student orientation program prior to the first semester of attendance.
  • Declaring a major in a timely manner.
  • Seeking academic advising at the five key points above.

If you don’t know who your academic advisor is, please go to your “My Profile” page, click on the “Student” tab, and look to the right under Student Information.
