  • To understand and respect your legal right to the privacy of your academic records, and to discuss confidential information about you only with appropriate campus staff and only in service of your best interests.
  • To understand the curriculum, graduation requirements, and institutional policies.
  • To help you plan a course of study for each semester and for the long-term.
  • To neither grant nor deny approval for academic actions but assist you with the process.

  • To help you take active and ultimate responsibility for your academic career.
