Application Process

Institution Information

Academic Advising Programs and Services (AAPS) serves the University by providing quality and timely advising services and support to students in transition and to advisors and faculty across campus. University students are served through virtual advising, walk-in advising, workshops for students exploring majors, new student orientation, and online resources. Through comprehensive work with students, staff, and faculty, AAPS facilitates academic success, major selection, career development, and personal enrichment. Re-deciding students at the University have the opportunity to visit the unit’s walk-in advising or participate in the Inter-College Transfer (ICT) advising program. Academic Advising Programs and Services supports these students in the major and career decision process and provides ICT students an advising home until the student is able to successfully matriculate to a major. The Exploratory Studies program in Academic Advising Programs and Services gives first-time freshmen the opportunity to choose a major after a guided, structured process for major and career exploration and transition to the University. This is accomplished through one-on-one academic advising, the Exploratory Studies first-year curriculum, experiential learning, and programming in the Exploratory Studies Village, emphasizing theoretical and practical methods of inquiry, guided reflection, engagement, assessment, and analysis. Through this process, students gain the foundation for acquiring the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to make an informed decision on a major and become self-reliant and productive citizens of an increasingly diverse community. Academic Advising Programs and Services also coordinates special outreach for transfer students, international students, second-year students, and students experiencing academic difficulty. AAPS is part of the University College in the Division of Academic & Student Affairs
