Traditional Studies Advising

All students are assigned an advisor by the Director of Academic Advising. Advisors are either faculty, staff with faculty status or selected staff members. In order to establish close personal contacts, each advisor typically works with 15 to 20 advisees. Accurate knowledge of students’ major program intentions is used by the University to assign academic advisors, assist in accurate advising about program requirements, anticipating the need for various courses and ensuring that graduation requirements have been met.

Freshmen enrolled in Tusculum Experience (OREN 105 ) will be advised in their first semester by their orientation instructor. After the first semester, if the student has decided upon a program of bachelor program of study, an advisor will be assigned from that area of study. If the student is seeking a general studies - associates degree, the Director of Advising will assign an advisor from a pool to work with those who are still exploring their majors. Once a bachelor’s program of study has been declared, the student will normally be reassigned to an advisor from the group working with that major. All students should meet with their advisors on a regular basis throughout the semester.
