At American University, undergraduate academic advising is a collaborative and purposeful partnership between advisors, the AU community, and students. Approached from a holistic perspective, this process considers and respects students' diverse backgrounds, interests, and abilities. Academic advisors facilitate the identification and achievement of the student's educational and professional goals.
Our mission is to provide thorough and accurate academic counsel to
the students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences, to assist them in the selection of a relevant, stimulating and challenging course of study and guide them toward choices that will make them better students and better citizens.
Undergraduate Academic Advising at American University models best practices for professionalism, collaboratively supports student development, and fosters an environment of student accountability and engagement.
The CAS undergraduate advising office is located in Battelle-Tompkins, Room 100, on the main AU campus (see 3D Campus Map and Printable Campus Map). The office is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, except on university holidays.
