Pittsburg State University ensures a high quality of academic advising by maintaining that all academic advisors should:

  • Post appropriate office hours and ALWAYS make time for students a priority during these hours and at other times as the advisor is available.

  • Assist students in understanding all degree requirements including institutional, departmental, course sequencing and other pertinent information.

  • Never give out an advisement number without adequate contact with, and advisement of, each individual student.

  • Be proactive throughout the advisement process by initiating contact with advisees to communicate requirements, deadlines and to discuss their educational plan.

  • Learn to access and use enrollment information on the GUS System.

  • Project that you genuinely care about students by serving as a resource to help them clarify life, career and academic goals.

  • Know about and make referrals to support services as appropriate.

  • Be aware of policies, requirements, resources and materials necessary for student's academic progress and achievement.

A student's academic advisor is assigned by the department of the student's major area of study.  A student may find out who has been assigned as his/her advisor by contacting the department of major or by accessing the Degree Audit in the Gorilla User System.
