Purdue University Northwest recognizes academic advising to be a critical component of the educational experience of its students. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement comprehensive educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals and career interests.
Academic advisors serve as a student’s primary point of contact for academic guidance and in navigating the college experience.
Academic advising is a shared responsibility between the student and the advisor. Students are responsible for communicating their goals, making decisions, and following through on the plan created to reach their goals. Academic advisors are responsible for helping students explore their options, connecting students to campus resources, and tracking students’ progress towards reaching their goals.
