ACADEMIC ADVISING CENTER
 

The Academic Advising Center is dedicated to the academic success of its students. AAC advisors empower students to take an active role in their own education by guiding them to a deeper understanding of the liberal arts curriculum. The AAC provides academic advising, educational planning, course selection, retention initiatives, and registration to all currently undeclared students. Academic advising is a planning and teaching process in which advisors and students collaborate to define, develop, and reach academic and educational goals that are consistent with the student's personal interests. Academic advising is a shared responsibility where the advisor serves as a mentor/teacher aiming to enhance the student's self-awareness and personal responsibility. Students meet with the AAC advisors to discuss their educational plans and progress, and identify the academic requirements to achieve their career goals. When students declare a major, they are assigned by the appropriate department chair to a faculty advisor. Students are ultimately responsible for reviewing and understanding the requirements of the degree program in which they are declared. The AAC provides consistently accurate information, in-depth and holistic advising support, and appropriate referrals to all other university resources.

The Assistant Director of the AAC supervises all activities of the center and follows up on undeclared student cases with faculty advisors, department chairs, and deans of colleges. The Assistant Director reports to the Director of AALSS. For additional information, visit the Academic Advising Center located in front of Gate 3, call ext. 3241, or email: AAC@auk.edu.kw.
