Roles, Responsibilities and Resources

In the College of Business Administration, academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an academic advisor in the Student Success Center. The intent of this collaboration is to assist the student in developing meaningful educational goals that are consistent with career aspirations, personal interests, values and abilities.

A key tenet of academic advising is that the student is responsible for their own decisions. The student's role is to explore academic, career, and personal goals. This requires the student to:

  • Seek advising early!  During registration time advising is at high demand and appointments are booked weeks in advance.
  • Be on time to your appointment!  Appointments will be canceled if 10 minutes late.
  • Come prepared to your advising appointment
  • Understand and know degree and major requirements 
  • Have an Major Advising Sheet and/or Roadmap available and use for degree planning
  • Have goals and tentative plan to discuss for your degree   
  • Be an active participate by listening, engaging in conversation, asking questions, and taking notes. 
  • Utilize available resources, including University catalogclass schedulegeneral education and STAN Degree Progress to monitor academic progress
  • Take responsibility for actions and decisions that affect academic progress.

The College of Business Administration’s Student Success Center Academic Advisors provides academic assistance and individualized attention to promote each student's success at Stanislaus State. They can share knowledge, experience, and insight that is beneficial to the student. They can also help explore academic interests, identify resources for additional information and support, as well as develop plans of study to meet student's educational goals. The advisor's role is to help the student evaluate and realize educational and career options. This requires the advisor to:

  • Approve the student's academic program of study
  • Provide accurate and consistent information
  • Clarify program requirements, policies, and procedures
  • Assist the student in identifying appropriate institutional resources
  • Facilitate relationships between the student and other individuals on campus who may provide assistance
  • Uphold the academic standards of the institution
