Academic Advising is a collaborative educational process. Students and their advisors are partners in meeting and ensuring academic, career, and employment goals. The partnership requires participation and involvement from both the student and the advisor. To get the most out of advising:
Excess Hours: Students should take care when selecting additional courses to be transferred toward a Baccalaureate degree. House Bill 1172 allows an institution to charge the equivalent of out of state tuition for credit hours taken beyond the state limits. It is recommended that students take minimal hours beyond degree requirements to avoid possible higher tuition charges at the institution to which they are transferring.
