The primary aim of the Office of Academic Advising is to guide students through a chosen academic program and assist them in establishing and maintaining a path to graduation.
Each student is assigned an academic advisor who works to connect students to the services and support available at the University. Students are required to meet regularly with their assigned academic advisor regarding the chosen academic program and progress toward the intended degree. Each student must also obtain the approval of the assigned academic advisor before registering and/or making registration changes.
AUBH recognizes that students hold the primary responsibility for their education and, hence, for their program choices. However, the academic advisor’s guidance is crucial in developing an informed basis for making responsible and expedient academic decisions. The obligation to understand and abide by the regulations of the chosen program resides with the student. Thus, academic advisors’ roles are to assist with academic planning; however, final responsibility rests with the student.
Academic advisors are assigned before students enroll in any classes. If, for any reason, a student wishes to have a different academic advisor, the student may submit an official Change of Academic Advisor request form.
