Advising Heroes

Academic Advising Services

The Mission of Academic Advising Services at the State University of New York at Fredonia is to empower students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are consistent with their academic, personal and professional goals through direct service to the student and collaboration with faculty, staff, and other campus resources.

What is Academic Advising at Fredonia?

  • Academic advising is a developmental process which assists students in the clarification of their life/career goals and in the development of educational plans for the realization of these goals.

  • It is a decision-making process by which students realize their maximum educational potential through communication and information exchanges with an advisor; it is ongoing, multifaceted, and the responsibility of both student and advisor.

  • The advisor serves as a facilitator of communication, a coordinator of learning experiences through course and career planning and academic progress review, and an agent of referral to other campus agencies as necessary
