We are here to help you!
The primary goals of Academic advising and mentoring are (1) to ensure that students are progressing in a timely manner toward graduation, and (2) to provide students with the tools necessary to succeed in college. Faculty advisors are committed to fostering the intellectual growthand personal development of students, and they strive to develop programs that meet the changing needs of the unique and diverse population we serve.
Additionally, advisors maintain collaborative relationships across campus and work in conjunction with others across campus and in the Center for Student Excellence to monitor student progress.
It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to ensure that all graduation requirements are met. Advisors should assist students to familiarize themselves with the Southeastern General Catalogue under which they are registered. (A change to a later catalogue can be made through the General Studies Office.) Students are required to contact an advisor prior to registration. Please call the General Studies Office at (985)549-3755 to schedule an appointment with your advisor. If this is an initial appointment, please indicate this when you call. Students who have mapped out their curriculum with an advisor may elect tocommunicate with their advisor directly through campus email.
