Academic Advising at the University of Delaware is a shared practice
throughout the institution that supports teaching, mentoring and
learning. Collaborative relationships among students, faculty advisors,
and professional advisors support students' development and achievement
of their educational goals.
As a UD student, your academic advisor is available to help you select
courses, choose or switch your major, explore careers or graduate
education, and make sure you're on track to complete your degree
requirements. You are encouraged
to visit your Advisor whenever you need
assistance with your academic program.
Your advisor can:
- Help you plan an academic program that is in line with your interests and abilities;
- Aid you in developing your educational and career goals;
- Assist you with monitoring your academic progress and offer suggestions on how you might seek assistance when necessary;
- Interpret academic policies, procedures, and requirements;
- Help you consider other educational opportunities in addition to
your coursework (volunteering, study abroad, campus organizations, etc.)
and refer you to University offices which might also assist you;
- Discuss career opportunities related to your academic studies and interests;
- Be a mentor.
