Students in the College of Natural Resources will benefit from the advice and expertise of both academic advisors and faculty advisors throughout their college careers. Understand that students are ultimately responsible for their education and decision making. Advisees must be prepared to take responsibility and be prepared to tackle a strategic approach towards graduation. However, students have invaluable help at their disposal through staff and professors who are advocates for the success of each and every student.

While Academic Advisors and Faculty Advisors both take an advising role when working with students, each has a separate responsibility to the student in their respective role:

Professional advisors work with all incoming students (traditional and transfer) until their junior year. Professional advisors assist students with the following responsibilities:

  • Developing four-year academic plans
  • Class scheduling assistance
  • Evaluation of transfer credits
  • Counseling for better understanding of degree requirements
  • Approval and processing of academic forms and documents such as class waivers, change of major, etc.
  • Graduation related information
  • Career development
  • University resource information

Faculty advisors are environmental science experts who can offer valuable insight and advice in this exciting field. Faculty advisors help students in the following areas:

  • Provide specific expertise in the student's area of interest
  • Connection to internship and research opportunities
  • Suggestions for specialization courses
  • "Big picture" discussions regarding career goals and opportunities
  • Graduate school guidance
  • Providing advice to keep students on track to fulfilling degree requirements for graduation in their particular major
