Academic Advising & Tutoring

Academic Advising

Jordan Student Academic Center, Room 2220

The Academic Advising Office supports and facilitates undergraduate students' transition and integration into college by assisting in the development of appropriate educational plans consistent with academic, career, and personal goals. Academic/Career Advisors promote the personal growth of students by respecting and appreciating various communication and cultural backgrounds.

Advisors provide academic and career advising for undeclared students and walk-in service for any other students. Upon arrival at Gallaudet University during New Student Orientation, each student is assigned to a professional advisor in the Academic Advising Office. Academic and career advising includes individual and group advising for new students, course registration, new student interviews, academic planning meetings, interest and personality testing, computerized career guidance programs, and assistance in selecting an academic major that best matches the student's values, interests, personality, and skills. A student will remain with the same advisor until he/she declares a major. At that time, the student transfers to a faculty academic advisor within the department of the major. Academic/Career Advisors work extensively with academic departments on academic policies, procedures, and curriculum. Advisors are available to faculty, parents, vocational rehabilitation counselors, and professionals on and off campus for information sharing and other academic and career advising concerns.
