The St. Mary’s academic advising program is committed to being a student-centered, integral part of the entire educational experience for our students at an honors college.
The academic advising office provides students with the tools to identify those abilities, needs, and interests to achieve their optimal academic performance. The program is grounded in:
- an understanding of the developmental needs of the student throughout the college experience
- the importance of collaboration and active engagement on the part of all individuals involved in the student’s education
- the value of the breadth and depth of a liberal arts education
Advising is an on-going and multi-faceted process that focuses on the development needs of the student. While the advisor serves as a facilitator for communication and planning related to academic progress, it is the student who bears ultimate responsibility for monitoring progress towards graduation.
