What is Academic Advising?

Academic advising at the University of Idaho is an ongoing teaching and learning experience that is based on collaboration between students, advisors and the Vandal community.

Advisors educate students about university policies and procedures promote engagement in high-impact opportunities, university life and the community; assist in the exploration and discovery of academic resources; and empower students to take ownership of their academic goals, decisions and achievements.


Undergraduate students can learn more about the advising process and other resources at Student Resources for Advising.
