Advising in the School of Education is split between Faculty Advising and Academic Advising.
Your faculty advisor is an instructor or professor in the School of Education, and often in your program or department, assigned to you when you matriculate. They are available to assist you with academic decision-making and planning, and provide personal and professional support. For graduate students, your advisor will help you develop your program of study and discuss your program requirements (such as a portfolio or intensive exam). Faculty advisors maintain posted office hours and are available to meet with students on a regular basis.
Academic advisors are professional staff in the Office of Academic and Student Services help you plan and keep track of your academic goals and get you ready for graduation. They can help you with the registration process, graduation requirements, transferring programs or credits, University and School policies and rules, and documentation. They can also help you with college life issues like family and relationships, exploring other programs at Syracuse University, and help you find and use other resources and offices on campus.
