Advising Center

Welcome to the Advising Center.

The goal of academic advising is to assist traditional undergraduate students to take responsibility for developing meaningful educational plans compatible with their potential and life goals. This is done through the following:

  1. Information Giving: Includes advice and consultation about registration, course offerings, degree programs, educational policies and regulations, as well as administrative dates and deadlines.
  2. Program Planning: Includes advice and consultation on semester-by-semester program planning, four-year planning, selection of specific courses, the registration process, and schedule adjustments.
  3. Student Referral: Recognizes that the academic advisor cannot meet all student needs but that specialized campus services are available for advice and consultation such as the Academic Success Center, Writing Center, Career Services, and Counseling Center.

Every student enrolled at Simpson University is assigned to an academic advisor. Advising responsibilities are shared between the Advising Center (AdviCe) staff: who advise students with less than 24 college credits, undeclared students, supplemental advising and students on academic status; and Faculty Advisors: who advise students who have completed 24 or more college credits within their department majors.

The Advising Center delivers services through face to face advising, in-class workshops, web-based communications, and forms available online and in the Advising Center. The Advising Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Owen Center in the Simpson Central office.
