Academic advising is a collaborative education process whereby you and your advisor are partners in meeting essential learning outcomes, promoting your academic success, and outlining the steps for achievement of your personal, academic, and career goals. Each student is assigned an academic adviser who provides counsel on course selection, curriculum checklists, and information on RIT services. It is common for a science major to have several mentors among the faculty who help with academic, career, and personal questions.
The University Advising Office is an excellent resource for general questions related to academic advising at RIT. If any member of the RIT community—student, faculty, or staff—needs assistance with advising related issues, the University Advising Office is a great resource. If you are unsure of who your advisor is or have general advising questions we are here to help you.
