Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an academic advisor. The purpose of this relationship is to assist students in the decision-making process throughout their academic journey. CoACM advisors help students navigate through major selection, degree requirements, course schedules, college and university policies, and campus resources. Advising is student-centered and an on-going mutual process.
