Student Responsibility
Academic Advising
The University views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating students. Academic advisers assist students in developing intellectual potential and exploring educational opportunities and life goals: learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures; to clarify educational objectives; to plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and life goals.

Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree.

Student Responsibility
While University faculty and staff members give students academic advice and assistance, each student is expected to take responsibility for his or her education and personal development. The student must know and abide by the academic and disciplinary policies given in the Undergraduate Catalog and the General Information Catalog.

The student must give correct local and permanent postal addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail address to the Office of the Registrar and to the offices of the student's deans and must notify these offices immediately of any changes. Official correspondence is sent to the postal or e-mail address last given to the registrar; if the student has failed to correct this address, he or she will not be relieved of responsibility on the grounds that the correspondence was not delivered.

All students should be familiar with the following sources of information:
General Information Catalog: gives important information about academic policies and procedures that apply to all students.

Undergraduate Catalog:
gives information about degrees offered by the undergraduate divisions and lists the faculty. The chapter for each college or school describes the academic policies and procedures that apply to students in that division and lists the division's undergraduate courses.

Course Schedule:
available before registration for each semester and summer session. It includes information about registration procedures; times, locations, instructors, prerequisites, and special fees of classes offered; and advising locations.
