Academic advising is one of the most important and influential components of the College of Education, Health, and Society (EHS). A primary factor is bringing students and faculty together to integrate academics and curriculum into a truly meaningful educational experience. The EHS Mission Statement endorses and emphasizes student preparation. In keeping with that statement, the goal of our academic advising program is to help students explore and synthesize academic, career, and life goals.

What is Academic Advising?

Advising is an important component of your academic experience and we encourage you to meet with an advisor. Students have many advising resources available to them; you can seek help from faculty, departmental, and divisional advisors.

Your advisor can help you with many facets of your educational journey:

  • Understanding and assisting you with you Global Miami Plan requirements, academic policies and procedures, and your degree audit (formerly known as DARS)
  • Mentoring for academic and career goals
  • Starting point for exploration of minors and other majors
  • Familiarity with services and resources around campus

How to prepare for an advising session

The key to successful academic advising relies partly upon your initiative. The more questions that you ask, the better informed your decisions will be. To prepare for an advising appointment, you should:

  • Give thoughtful consideration to your academic and career goals
  • Make a list of questions for your advisor
  • Review your degree audit and degree requirements
  • Compose a tentative, written schedule (if registering for courses)
  • Be familiar with the academic calendars, including registration dates and drop-add deadlines
  • Accept responsibility for academic choices
  • Remember, part of your advisor's role is helping you find and navigate the path that is right for you; utilize this resource!
