Academic advisors can provide students with information regarding scholarships that are being offered by specific colleges, universities, and private agencies.

Because academic advising has much in common with teaching, advisors can adapt many of the same tools they use in the teaching environment to their work with advisees. One such tool is our MC Advising Syllabus.

Typically, a course syllabus lays out an instructor’s philosophy and goals for the course, along with the expectations for both the instructor and the students, and some important policies and dates.

In the same way, the MC Advising Syllabus can describe the nature and purpose of the advising relationship, establish expectations for the Academic Advisor and student, and outline important policies and dates. Our Advising Syllabus can help provide structure for your advising sessions and it establishes from the beginning the nature of the relationship.
