An academic advisor will guide and assist each student in planning coursework, both before registration and at any time the need arises. Most advising can be done at a student’s convenience.
At Benedictine University, academic advising is grounded in Benedictine values and the University mission. It is an interactive process between the advisor and the student and is supported by technology. The goal is to promote each student’s academic, career and personal development. Faculty and staff are committed to creating a decision-making framework through which students can identify and realize their educational goals. Although academic advising is a collaborative function of both student and advisor, the final responsibility for satisfying University and program requirements rests with the student.
