Role of Advisors

ASU-Newport advisors intentionally spend time building rapport and trust with their advisees. Advisors will learn about each adviseeā€™s strengths, skills, and abilities. Advisors will encourage and challenge students to dream about their future and then co-create a plan to help students achieve their goals. During this entire process, advisors are committed to maintaining an appropriate level of confidentiality as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 

Processes advisors may assist students with include: degree and career exploration, designing an academic plan, registering for courses, supplying information on transfer options and/or employment opportunities, and providing information on student services such as tutoring and financial aid.

All ASUN students will be assigned an advisor and have access to our Professional Advising Center.
