Advising for the Elementary Education Program
Academic Advising at the college-level is somewhat different from the type of guidance you may have received in high school. One primary difference is that you must take responsibility for planning your education. This means that you will be expected to take initiative in learning all you can about your degree requirements. By carefully reviewing all the information on this webpage, you are taking a good step in this direction! This will also help you to take full advantage of valuable time with your advisor.
Students meet with their general advisor in the Academic Advising Center located in D.D. Dougherty Hall until 30 semester hours have been completed (12 hours for transfer students) and their major has been "officially declared". Once a student declares their major the Reich College of Education Dean's Office, Rm. 405C, will send a welcome email to the student along with information about scheduling an advising appointment.
