CAAS manages academic advisement undergraduate services for the college and empowers both faculty and students to proactively enhance student learning. All CSI undergraduate students must declare a major by the time they’ve earned 44 college (degree bearing) credits. Upon their 45th credit, all students are transitioned to their academic departments where they are mentored by faculty advisors until graduation.
CAAS specifically provides advisement support to all entering and continuing undeclared students, to those students in declared majors without an embedded advisor until they have earned 44 college-level credits, and to students who are declared in Associate Degree Liberal Art majors.
Here, while students find academic assistance with educational goal planning, major and career identification, general education requirements, DegreeWorks (the degree audit self-advisement tool), TAP eligibility and academic policies; faculty can find assistance with advisor/mentor training and development, and CLUE-certified academic advising workshops.
