Academic Advising

The College of ECST believes academic advising is an essential part of student success. We are committed to delivering quality advising services to our students to assist them achieve their educational, career, and personal goals. We do this by nurturing a culture where students take responsibility, actively participate in the advising process, and by using a full range of institutional resources.  To deliver advising services, our college practices a split advising model in which advising is carried out by professional staff advisors in the ECST Advising Center (EAC), which is housed in the ECST Student Success Center (ESSC), and by faculty advisors in their departments.
