Academic advising can be one of the most important resources in a student’s educational experience. Rowan College South Jersey recognizes academic advising as a fundamental component of a student's development and academic success. Academic advising provides opportunities to enrich students’ educational plans so that they align with their personal values, goals, and career plans.
Your advisor can help you with
- making decisions concerning life goals
- vocational goals
- program choices
- course choices
Advisors can also assist students in exploring careers, transfer options and much more! Your advisor is essentially your academic tour guide that will assist you in navigating your college career. It is an advisor's responsibility to assist and guide the student. However, it is the student's responsibility to make final decisions about his or her academic program and career selection.
