Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising

Academic advising assists students in selecting courses, enhancing academic performance, setting academic goals and planning for timely graduation. Academic advising also helps students understand and interpret academic policies and guidelines. Each semester, students are required to meet with their academic advisors to discuss course selection and to receive a RAC (Registration Access Control) number. Students are then responsible for registering for courses online.

All first-year, new transfer undergraduate students, and IEP risers are assigned to the Academic Advising Center (AAC) for advising.
Scholarship students are required to seek advising from the AAC based on their scholarship defined major.

When a student completes 60 credits of undergraduate coursework, s/he is required to declare a major. All declared students are assigned a faculty advisor based on the student’s major and advisor’s availability. If a declared student is on academic probation, s/he is advised by the AAC until s/he returns to Good Standing. Major Declaration forms are submitted to the AAC, forwarded to the relevant academic department and processed by the Registrar’s Office. 

Scholarship students are required to declare their major in accordance with their scholarship defined major.

To facilitate the advising process, students are encouraged to become familiar with AUK’s online advising program—Degree Works, and the University’s academic catalog and requirements for degree completion. Students are responsible for contacting their advisors before each registration period or when help is needed. The academic advisor assists the student in the identification and selection of courses that meet general education and degree requirements after which the student is provided with a RAC (Registration Access Control) number for online registration.
