RIT Kosovo academic advising is a continuous, proactive process where advisors and student's partner to review each student's individualized curriculum goals and build connections and networking opportunities with RIT Kosovo faculty, staff, and the rest of RIT community. 

The Academic Advising Team is committed to the success of all students within the college. We utilize a student-centered approach that enriches learning and facilitates student development in preparation for success within a diverse society. Academic advisors empower students to make decisions that enhance their educational, personal, and professional growth and development.

Through consistent interactions, advisors build strong relationships with students. We believe academic advising is driven by students.
