Academic Advisement

A distinctive characteristic of the educational program at Flagler is the emphasis placed on teaching and advising. These two aspects of the educational program are the primary responsibilities of faculty. Advisement plays an important role in guiding the student through his or her educational experience at Flagler.

Full-time faculty serve as advisors to students who are usually majoring in the advisor’s field of study.

The major responsibilities of the advisor are to assist students in planning their educational program, selecting specific courses to satisfy degree requirements, clarifying procedures, and responding to questions and concerns. Advising at Flagler is carried on as a continuous process rather than a periodic service. To this end, students are encouraged to meet regularly with their advisors to monitor their progress in achieving their educational and personal goals.
