Academic Advising is the only structured activity on the campus in which all students have the opportunity for an on-going, one-to-one interaction with a concerned representative of the university.
During your first two regular semesters here at Southeastern, we will work together to explore career and academic opportunities, identify and attain realistic goals, and develop decision-making skills leading to personal growth and independence.
Develop a relationship with your assigned Academic Advisor through face-to-face meetings
Identify roadblocks and plan strategies to overcome them (time management, poor study skills, stress, balancing work and school)
Navigate the LEONet system and website successfully (registration, holds, transcripts, calendars, GPA calculator)
Identify and utilize campus resources (counseling, disability services, tutoring, supplemental instruction)
Select appropriate courses based on curriculum requirements
Get connected to the University (culture, sports, organizations, KSLU Radio, study groups, peer mentoring)
Listen carefully to questions and concerns
Provide information, resources, and referrals as needed
Help you create a plan to achieve your academic and career goals
Provide guidance through the career exploration process
