Academic advising is more than being cleared to register for class. It’s your opportunity to learn more about yourself and your study habits, understand your degree program, become familiar with the many resources that LSUS offers, and set goals for the semester and your career after graduation. Approached correctly, academic advising is a vital step in learning for success.
Understanding your role in the advising process will empower you to take control of your future and achieve your goals. Remember that academic advising is not a passive experience: what you get out of it depends on what you put in.
The tools provided on this website and through myLSUS help you prepare for your advising appointment by answering the many questions you might have, from how to locate your advisor to the impact of your GPA on your financial aid. We hope that you find these pages useful and invite you to contact the Advising Committee with your comments and questions.
