Academic Advising

Academic Advising

A newly accepted student is assigned to a professional academic advisor for the first two registration cycles of the student’s academic career at Cedar Crest College.  The professional academic advisor will assist a student with registering for the first semester and outlining academic and career goals. 

After the drop/add period of a student’s second semester, he or she will be re-assigned to a faculty advisor in the student’s major area of study. 

Assignment to advisor

Adult students are advised by an admissions representative in the Adult and Graduate Admissions Office until they formally declare an academic major. At the time a student declares an academic major, a faculty advisor is assigned by the Chair of the department in which the student plans to major.
