Academic Advising Services
Edgewood College Academic Advising Services exists to provide academic advising to pre-declared undergraduate students. We assist and support students as they explore their educational goals, learn about academic requirements, understand the College organizational structure, and progress toward degree completion. We support the College by providing general academic resource information to faculty, staff, students, and other stake-holders throughout the life cycle of the students we serve.
- assist students in acquiring initial understanding of the curriculum,
- guide students toward course options required take to meet long-term educational and/or career goals,
- monitors progress through each segment of the student life-cycle.
The advising model is a combination of interaction with academic advisors (both generalist and professional school advisors) at the beginning of the Edgewood College experience, to learn about the curriculum in holistic terms. The next step is to connect students with a faculty advisor who is passionate about their field of study and who can highlight enriched learning opportunities related to the discipline outside of the classroom.
Advisors work in partnership with students to connect learning, beliefs, and actions as they develop and implement their academic and career goals. Advisors welcome students of diverse backgrounds, religious affiliations, ethnic and racial identifications, and sexual orientations to this partnership.
