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.
