Rutgers Business School – Newark Undergraduate Academic Advising

Academic advisement is a collaborative educational process; students and their advisor are partners in meeting the essential learning goals that support student success. Academic advisement is not an event, but a process, with the student taking the lead and responsibility for their academic career; while the advisor provides the student with the tools, direction and appropriate referrals to assist students in meeting those goals.
