The mission of Academic Advising in the Office of Academic Advising and Accessibility is to advocate for student success, persistence, and timely graduation through purposeful academic relationships and community building. At the heart of this is our collaborative work with you, the student.
Faculty are the primary advisors for students; the Office of Academic Advising and Accessibility advisors serve as secondary advising support should a faculty member be on sabbatical leave, or is inaccessible over the summer months. AAA advisors may also be assigned as a new transfer student’s primary advisor before that student declares a major.
We welcome questions about all aspects of transfer, from what to expect in your transition to Wagner to creating your first semester schedule. And you can easily see how your credits will transfer to Wagner with our Online Transfer Evaluation System.
The Office of Academic Advising and Accessibility can help with:
- Exploring and articulating academic and career-related interests and goals
- Discussing declaration of a major, minor, double major, or double minor
- Course selection and sequencing
- Dropping or adding courses
- Tracking and maintaining progress toward degree requirements
