The Academic Advisor will share academic advising of all Liberal Arts and Sciences majors advising a caseload of CLAS. Advising includes considering class and university withdrawals, overload permits, probation interviews, general scheduling advising and degree requirements as well as assisting with the coordination of orientation and recruitment programs within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Advising at Northern Illinois University is critical to retention and student success. Understanding that student’s needs are different depending upon where they are in their development is at the core of advising at NIU. We practice both developmental advising and high-touch intervention recognizing the importance of;
- The interaction between students and the campus environment
- The value of supporting the “whole” student
- The consideration of student’s developmental level
- The need to be intentional and responsive to concerns, potential risks, barriers or challenges.
Advisors at NIU are deliberative and proactive, and are expected to work in collaboration with support units across campus guided by the goal of student success. Advisors are expected to understand and fully utilize technology to support positive student outcomes including utilizing Navigate for scheduling, note-taking, referral and data analysis. All advisors at NIU are expected to be highly aware of the status of the students in their caseload including retention, persistence and graduation outcomes, academic outcomes and progress toward completion and achievement of customized pathways to completion
