All students are assigned an academic advisor when they are accepted to Chowan University. You may have been assigned a temporary advisor during summer SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) dates in order to equitably distribute SOAR attendees; not all faculty members are available at each SOAR session. If you have declared a major, your new advisor will usually teach within that department and will begin working with you during the first semester.
If you have not yet decided on a major, your advisor will be someone experienced in advising undecided students; once you declare a major, you will be assigned a permanent advisor in that field.
Campus Web will give you your advisor's name, email address, telephone number and office location.
While your advisor will help you navigate university policies and procedures, and provide suggestions for completing the program you have chosen, all responsibility for knowing and fulfilling the requirements for your degree ultimately rests on your shoulders. This means you need to spend time thinking about what you want and where you want to go after Chowan:
