Advising Home Who are we? Marshall University advisors are individuals who are here to assist you with any academic issues you may face during your college experience. Advisors are unique to each department and are essential to student success at the university. What do we do? Academic advisors discuss curricular decisions with you, while also helping you to create the ideal course schedule for your chosen major. We also guide students through a number of challenges which can create barriers to graduation. Find Your Advisor Your academic advisor is your primary contact for guiding you through your chosen course of study at MU. Working with your advisor to build the right schedule helps to ensure your timely graduation! Click on the Find Your Advising picture above to see your advisor’s contact information. If you are a new student that has not yet been assigned an advisor, you will be directed to your college Dean’s office. Stay On Track Once you’ve met with your advisor, it is important to stay the course as you head toward graduation. Work diligently each semester to pass your classes, and make sure you take the necessary number of hours to complete your degree. Degree Works will help you make sure you are staying up to date with your degree. Choose Your Major Many students struggle to decide on a major during the college experience. The Office of Career Education will help you find a major that’s right for you through a process of self-assessment and consulting.
