What is Advising?
At Virginia Western, academic advising is offered by a team of faculty and staff members comprised of New Student Advisors, who work in the Advising Center and advise new students, Program Advisors, who have offices located near each academic school and advise returning students, and Faculty Advisors, who are assigned to students once they have declared a program of study. Students are assigned a Faculty advisor based on their major and will work with that advisor during their pursuit of a degree or certificate.
The mission of Academic Advising is to partner with students to help them define, plan and progress towards their educational goals by fostering independence, facilitating a professional, supportive environment and promoting student development skills.
