Student Advising

You are here


Michigan State University employs academic advising professionals with advanced degrees in counseling, education, university administration and related fields. Our academic advisers are available to help students plan an academic program that meets their educational and professional goals and to provide them with information they need to make wise educational and personal decisions. Advisers can help students explore engineering majors and career options. They can also direct students to important campus resources for assistance with test-taking, study skills, career planning and much more.

Academic advisers are here to guide student along the way, but remember, students are responsible for making their own decisions during college regarding courses to take, which major(s) to pursue, and when to see an adviser. Students are responsible for keeping current with curriculum changes, including course schedules and progress towards the degree.
