The staff of the Anderson University School of Adult Learning provides a variety of advising and counseling services for all adult students prior to and throughout the program. Academic advising is an important part of your educational journey at Anderson University.
What will occur during academic advising?
The School of Adult Learning will explain to you in detail the options for additional credit. The various credit options are:
When will I be advised?
Before starting classes, you will meet with the SOAL to review your Assessment Overview. Once you have started your cohort, please contact SOAL regarding enrolling in upcoming semester classes.
Why is advising and degree completion planning necessary?
Talking with your advisor is necessary to assist you in understanding and completing all degree requirements (core courses and electives as applicable) in a timely manner. The SOAL will help and guide you toward graduation.
How do I know if I need additional credits?
After your first appointment with the SOAL, you will have a better understanding of what credits are needed to complete the degree and how to obtain those. We will assist you in planning how to complete those credits. It is important to keep in contact with us on your progress.
If you are working toward a traditional program, you will be assigned an advisor in your area.
