Helping every student achieve their academic goals
At Ashland University, academic advising is viewed as a student centered process and is an integral part of the higher education experience.
This collaborative team effort between the Professional Academic Advising Team and College Faculty Advisors is intended to guide the students' academic progress toward graduation and a rewarding post-graduate future. Click below to expand on each of our specific processes.
Ashland University's goal is to have its undergraduate students work with a Faculty Advisor in conjunction with the Academic Advising Directors that are assigned to each college.
Advisors can assist undergraduate students who are trying to decide on a major of study. The Professional Advisors provide an added resource to students who are exploring their options by outlining specific requirements for a students' chosen major, while guiding them through the scheduling process.
Once a student has selected a major, they will be assigned to a Faculty Advisor within their major of study.
In coordination with individual faculty advisers, the Academic Advising Offices work closely with students who are defined as academically at-risk.
A student who is conditionally admitted or earning a GPA below 2.0 during any semester is encouraged, and at times required, to meet with an academic adviser to evaluate the impact of performance on grade point requirements for majors and/or degrees.
Although the final responsibility always rests with the student, the faculty advisor's aim in coordination with the Directors of Academic Advising is to promote self-sufficiency as the student works toward undergraduate and post-graduate goals.
