Academic Advising at Wheaton College promotes a college experience that empowers students to engage in self-awareness and exploration through active listening, reframing, encouraging and validating. Academic Advising provides the impetus for students to realize their potential. In partnership with faculty advisors, academic advising recognizes students’ ability by building relationships, connecting them to resources, and fostering their investment in the global community.
Academic advising at the college is a shared responsibility between student and advisor, whether with a student success advisor or faculty advisor. Student success advisors can help students by program with general advising or specific major questions.
Advisors assist students as they:
- explore learning inside and outside the classroom
- reflect upon their goals and academic choices
- plan their academic program(s)
- monitor their progress toward completion of all degree requirements
Student Success Advisors in Academic Advising can recommend courses and fields of study appropriate to the individual student’s interests and abilities.
