First Year Experience faculty advisors serve as a source for general questions and concerns about coursework, academic programs, campus life, and other issues.
This advising is supplemented by the First Year Experience Academic Advisor, who is a professional staff advisor who is in close contact with other campus resources, and is dedicated to working with first-year students on a broad range of student life and academic matters. The First Year Experience Academic Advisor assists students with registration and scheduling, transfer credit and advanced placement, understanding first year requirements and degree programs.
Programs Just for First Year Students
Academic Advising coordinates programming on its own and in partnership with other offices that is specially designed for first-year students. Programs include transitioning to MICA, gaining self-awareness and self-management, involvement in your new community, and choosing a major. Attending and participating in programs is a great way to get to know MICA and resources that are available to you.
