Academic Advising

April 20 - 26, 2020 | Three Things in Academic Advising This Week

'Three Things in Academic Advising This Week' highlights policies, upcoming events, technology updates, and other important updates relevant to academic advising. 

Three Things will return in the fall, but for now, here are 3 resources to keep an eye on during the summer months


Student Resource Videos

The Student Academic Advising Resources Index contains a variety of advising-related resources to help students with academic planning and advisement. We will likely continue adding new videos to this page over the summer.


Pass/Fail FAQs

As you will likely continue to receive questions from students about the new Pass/Fail policy for Spring 2020 courses, please refer back regularly to the Pass/Fail FAQs page.


Advisor Toolbox

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focused on keeping advisor-related trainings, technology, and other important resources as readily accessible as possible. We hope to minimize the effect that this extraordinary situation has on advisors' ability to do their jobs, so please continue to regularly refer to the Advisor Toolbox. We are working daily to keep our content as up-to-date and accurate as possible.
