The University provides information and academic advice to students to assist them in making proper academic decisions. The dean of each college or school is responsible for providing an effective system of information dissemination and advising that is appropriate to the academic programs of that college or school. Each unit seeks to provide the most current and accurate information and advice possible. The student is responsible for seeking advice, for knowing and meeting the requirements of the degree program of interest, for enrolling in courses appropriate to that degree program, and for taking courses in the proper sequence to ensure orderly and timely progress toward the degree.
In the School of Law, the Director of Academic Advising serves as the primary academic adviser. Additional counseling is available from others in the Student Affairs Office.
Advising is required for students on scholastic probation; for students readmitted to the Law School after a leave of absence or withdrawal; or at the discretion of the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
