Academic Advising

All students are assigned an advisor by the Director of Academic Advising.  Advisors are either faculty or selected staff members.  In order to establish close personal contacts and provide quality academic advising in a spirit of service, each advisor typically works with 15 to 20 advisees.  Advisors inform students about college policies and program requirements ensuring that all graduation requirements are met and students have a positive educational experience. 

Each student is encouraged to meet with their academic advisor on a regularly and individual basis.  However, Academic Advising is more than just registering students for each semester.  Advisors are available to help each student to learn and navigate how to use the resources at Tusculum University and to find solutions to problems the student might have.  The objective of Tusculum’s Academic Advising is to assist students in the development of meaningful education goals that are consistent with personal interests, values and abilities.
