What is Academic Advising?



Advising is an important component of your academic experience and we encourage you to meet with an advisor. Students have many advising resources available to them; you can seek help from faculty, departmental, and divisional advisors.

Your advisor can help you with many facets of your educational journey:

  • Understanding and assisting you with you Global Miami Plan requirements, academic policies and procedures, and your degree audit (formerly known as DARS)
  • Mentoring for academic and career goals
  • Starting point for exploration of minors and other majors
  • Familiarity with services and resources around campus
