Academic Advising

Advising Expectations

The key tenet for an effective system of advising is shared responsibility. A student is ultimately responsible for the choices he or she makes in college, but in order to make informed decisions, students need the mentoring and advice of academic advisors.

Advisors are expected to provide:

  • Accurate and timely advice
  • Appropriate referrals
  • Accessibility/Availability
  • Assistance clarifying academic and career goals
  • A friendly and professional environment

Students are expected to:

  • Maintain regular contact and make appointments
  • Arrive on time and be prepared for advising appointments
  • Track their academic progress and fulfillment requirements
  • Read and understand advising guides and materials ( academic calendar, academic regulations, schedule of classes, academic program curriculums, and the Montana Tech catalog)
  • Check your registration and grades
  • Engage in periodic and realistic self-evaluations
  • Ask for help
