Academic Advising Guidelines

Advisor expectations

Your advisor will …

  • Be an advocate on your behalf as it relates to your academic progress at the Gabelli School of Business.
  • Be your primary point of contact at the Gabelli School as it relates to your academic planning and progress toward your graduate business degree.
  • Understand and effectively communicate the curriculum, graduation requirements, and University policies and procedures in order to provide helpful and appropriate advisement and mentoring.
  • Be available, approachable, and personable; demonstrate concern for and interest in your well-being.
  • Make appropriate referrals within the University; encourage you to develop skills that will lead to self-responsibility.
  • Have profound respect for you as an individual and serve as a model of the educated person.
  • Maintain your confidentiality—not discuss your issues outside of the advising meeting unless the situation is severe enough that you may do harm to yourself or others.

Student expectations

Students are expected to …

  • Display respect for your advisors, students, faculty, and other members of the Gabelli School of Business community and have a positive attitude toward the advising process.
  • Accept responsibility for decisions and actions (or inactions) that affect your educational progress and goals. This includes managing your own academic worksheet and being intimately familiar with your Degree Works degree audit.
  • Keep your advising commitments. If you schedule an appointment with an advisor, you are expected to keep the appointment or cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
  • Be prepared. It is your responsibility to be knowledgeable about the Gabelli School curriculum and come to advising appointments prepared to assume responsibility for degree planning. Many of the answers can be found on the Gabelli School of Business website.
  • Ask questions if you do not understand an issue or have a specific concern. It’s never good to assume or default to “someone said.”
