Student advising is just one of the many ways you’ll connect with Concordia faculty and gain valuable advice along the way. Our professors want you to succeed and are dedicated to helping you make good academic choices.
During your freshman year, you will be assigned an adviser. Twice each year, you’ll meet with your faculty adviser to plan your classes for the following semester and evaluate your long-term educational and career goals. Of course, you’re welcome, and encouraged, to meet with your adviser at other times during the year, as many students do.
During student advising, your adviser will:
- Help you understand liberal arts education as a commitment to lifelong learning.
- Aid you in determining career goals based on your aptitudes and interests.
- Help you select a course of study to achieve those goals and discover your vocation.
- Provide you with information and resources for any academic issues.
- Assist you in identifying emerging interests and relating those to opportunities in and outside the classroom.
- Help you understand the policies and regulations that give structure to your educational experience.
While your adviser is there to assist you, you are responsible for knowing the regulations and policies as listed in the Concordia College Catalog, and for meeting the requirements for your chosen degree.
