Academic Advising

Academic advising at Wayne College is concerned with assisting the student in making the best possible decisions about academic life. The academic adviser is a "generalist" and helps the student to select from available programs the one most appropriate to abilities and interests, and to establish realistic academic goals in terms of sensible credit loads, proper choice of courses, study habits, outside workloads, and other circumstances affecting the student's academic life.

The adviser also serves as a reliable storehouse of information about program demands and administrative procedures. The adviser possesses a thorough knowledge of the University community and its members and maintains a comprehensive and current awareness of developments and requirements in all University programs.

The adviser is familiar with administrative procedures such as admission, registration, withdrawal from classes, credit-by-examination, advanced placement credit, intercampus/intercollege transfer, probation and academic dismissal. Finally, the adviser acts as a referral source for the student with specialized needs.

All Freshmen will be required to meet with their Academic Adviser each semester before scheduling.  Upperclassman are strongly encouraged to schedule a meeting with an adviser each semester.
