What can I expect from my Academic Advisor?

  • Clarification of your CBU degree requirements, your degree guide, and transfer work.
  • Assistance in course planning for all your remaining requirements.
  • Guidance in registering for classes, finding needed classes, making schedule changes, and overcoming registration blocks.
  • Support in identifying and resolving issues that are impeding your academic success.
  • Facilitation in changing majors or programs.
  • Connections to the many resources available to you at CBU.
  • Mediation in communication with CBU departments, faculty, and staff.

What does my Academic Advisor expect from me?

  • Taking ownership of your CBU degree by familiarizing yourself with your degree guide and other resources that are available to you.
  • Understanding that you are responsible for knowing and meeting your CBU degree requirements.
  • Asking questions when you are uncertain of policy or requirements; not listening to rumors, but using your CBU catalog to determine the facts and, if you are unsure or bothered with something, asking an Academic Advisor.
  • Being familiar with the Academic Calendar and adhering to its deadlines, such as last day to add, drop and withdraw from classes.
  • Registering for classes early to ensure you get in needed classes to stay on track for academic success. Classes are typically available for registration one year in advance.
