The Academic Advising Office supports and facilitates undergraduate students' transition and integration into college by assisting the students with the development of their educational plans consistent with their 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 to their students who have not declared their major. Other students who have declared their major may request advice from the academic advisors about courses or other issues although they have faculty advisors. Upon arrival at Gallaudet University during New Student Orientation, each student is assigned to an academic advisor in the Academic Advising Office. Academic and career advising is provided individually and in groups for new students which involves course registration and interest and personality testing, and assistance in selecting an academic major that best matches the student's values, interests, personality, and skills. A student will remain with the advisor until he/she declares a major which, at that time, 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 prospective students, faculty, parents, vocational rehabilitation counselors, and professionals on and off campus for information sharing, as well as working with them on academic and career advising concerns.
