Subject: Advising Resources for Faculty and Staff Advisors
Dear Respective Department Heads / Coordinators,
I placed this e-mail note below on *Messenger* yesterday, but realize many may opt not to read and/or give minimal attention to *Messenger*.
Please forward this to your faculty advisors.
Dear Faculty Advisor,
Good day to you!
I have included a link below we crafted last spring to help some faculty advisors who are new to advising at NSU. I sent this to all department heads in March ‘13 and ACE has used this resource continually. It is a good guide to use prior to and during advising sessions.
Additionally, I have pasted the 2013-2014 Academic Advising Handbook link below. It has a couple important updates from last spring:
* Adult Learners – Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) –see page 9.
* Change in core social / behavioral sciences (6 credits still required, but all 6 may now be at the 1000-level) – see page 18.
* Course equivalencies between NSU core and Louisiana Scholars’ College core – see page 20.
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you for your commitment to student success.
