Academic advising at ASU Mid-South focuses on student success.
Your academic advisor will work with you to create a solid foundation that moves you steadily toward your goals.
Be sure to interact frequently with your advisor. He or she will have the information you need to establish priorities, and overcome potential roadblocks. You can rely on your advisor’s expertise and wisdom, and learn to take increasing responsibility for your future.
Academic advisors can assist you with the following:
Degree plan development
Course selection to ensure degree attainment
Comprehension of course expectations
Familiarity with academic and college policies, procedures, and requirements
Identification of strategies and resources for academic success
Our Advising Structure
Students will be advised according to their classification as a first-time degree seeking or returning student. Students who are first-time degree seeking students will be advised by their College Survival instructor and returning students will be advised by a program advisor based on their declared major of study. Non-degree seeking students will not be assigned an advisor but can seek advisement in the Registrar’s office. International students will be advised by the Registrar.
