Student Academic Advising Planner

The planner is a tool that individual advisors can choose to use with their advisees or that students can use on their own. This 9-page document includes checklists for fall and spring semesters, a core planning worksheet for planning general education courses, a four-year planning worksheet, lists of responsibilities for both students and advisors, and a four-year advising checklist.

Sample Advising Contract

The advising contract clarifies that ultimately it is the student, not the academic advisor, who has primary responsibility for academic decisions and degree progress. Advisors have the option to use this contract, modify the contract to reflect the way they work with their advisees, or not use any contract at all.
