Academic advising is a teaching and learning process designed to help you understand the meaning and purpose of higher education and develop goals that reflect your interests, values, and abilities.
AUM academic advisors are committed to helping you make the most of your college experience. They’ll help you explore your academic interests, teach you how to plan your education, and refer you to campus resources designed to meet your needs. Meetings with your advisor are private and will provide you with the information you need for a successful academic career.
Registering for Classes
At AUM, you are required to meet with your academic advisor before you can register for classes. All new students (freshman and transfer) must attend New Student Orientation, where they will meet their academic advisor and register for classes on site. Current and returning students may meet with their advisor at any time during the year to discuss classes for the next semester.
In the advising appointment, you and your academic advisor will work together to select courses that are relevant to your purpose of study. When those courses have been identified, you will receive a personal identification number (PIN) that allows you to register for classes during the appropriate registration period. Information regarding registration periods can be found on the Academic Calendar.
