Academic sessions are recommended only for those students who have decided on their major course of study due to the nature of the information provided. The role of the academic advisor is to explain and discuss academic requirements and help students progress through the major to graduation. As a prospective student, your academic advising time provides you an opportunity to learn specifics of your desired major and the school/college that offers the program.
