Academic advising is an essential component of a Syracuse University education. Successful advising depends on students, faculty and staff sharing timely, accurate information with one another.
How do I work with my academic advisor?
Student Responsibilities: You are responsible for scheduling, preparing for and keeping advising appointments; for seeking out contacts and information; and for knowing the basic requirements of your academic programs. You will bear the final responsibility for making decisions based on the best information and advice available and, ultimately, on your own judgment.
Advisor Responsibilities: Advisors are responsible for developing a thorough knowledge of the degree requirements within a student’s program of study and a working knowledge of academic options and resources throughout the University. Advisors will encourage you to ask questions, gather information and explore options so you can develop a meaningful academic plan.
