Center for Student Advising
Academic advising involves the faculty members who are designated as academic advisers. They take care of the academic
needs of the students enrolled in their respective programs, and monitor the scholastic performance of the students by
assisting them in choosing the group of courses they need to take to ensure that they fulfill the curriculum
requirements in the most effective and efficient manner. The Academic advising is comprised of multiple advising units:
Course Advisers, Enrolment Advisers and Program Advisers.
This includes the professors who accommodate the student’s concerns related to their currently enrolled courses.
Students may seek assistance from their course advisers on their declared advising hours which may vary every term.
Also known as the special faculty advisers (SFAs), they are tasked to assist students during enrolment in changing
courses, adding or deleting courses, changing sections, waiving of prerequisites, requesting inclusion to a section,
requesting a course overload, opening of class tutorials, among others.
Also known as curricular advisers, they serve as the primary contact for academic advice of all students regarding their
degree program. Program advisers are usually the dean of the school, the program coordinator and/or any of the faculty
expert assigned by the dean.
