Undergraduate academic advising in the College of Science teaches and empowers students to take responsibility for learning and for their own academic success through academic planning.
Academic advising is intended for you, as the student, to proactively plan and consult with your advisor on your academic program in order to achieve your educational and professional goals.
Each College of Science academic department has designated faculty members to provide academic advising; your faculty advisor is a great resource for answering questions specific to your College of Science major or minor and general career or graduate school goals.
Academic advising is provided by the department offering your major or minor in either a group setting or by individual appointments.
The College of Science has a minimum 3 semester mandatory advising policy for incoming freshmen - that is, all incoming freshmen will have an advising hold in MyNEVADA for 3 consecutive semesters. The advising hold is removed after the student has successfully participated in the advising process.
NOTE: All College of Science engineering programs (Geological Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, and Mining Engineering) require mandatory advising every semester until graduation.
The following advising syllabi identifies both the student and faculty advisor roles, expectations, and responsibilities related to the advising process along with the College's Advising Mission Statement and the College's definition of academic advising.
