Academic Advising Center

From the start of your academic career at Salisbury University, you have a partner in your academic success. The Academic Advising Center staff is dedicated to teaching you how to figure your what you want out of your degree and how to get there.

Academic Advising and You

All first-year, full-time students are assigned an academic advisor in your area of interest. You’ll meet with them regularly, one on one, so you can:

  • clarify your ambitions
  • engage in the curriculum and meet requirements
  • navigate registration software and work in GullNet
  • select appropriate courses
  • locate campus resources
  • create four-year plans
  • evaluate your progress in meeting degree requirements
  • understand the decision-making process
  • make informed decisions on your path toward graduation

In addition to the academic advisors, many specialized majors, programs and colleges have a secondary advisor or program mentor assigned to help you navigate their complexities. There are also Advising Services Coordinators (or ASCs) who are responsible for providing individual support to SU’s schools and colleges and may work with you on some issues. As you progress in your major, you’ll be advised by a faculty mentor within your discipline who is an expert in your field and can guide you toward graduation and beyond.
