American University Advising Mission and Vision

Mission

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.

Vision

Undergraduate Academic Advising at American University models best practices for professionalism, collaboratively supports student development, and fosters an environment of student accountability and engagement.

Contact Information and Office Hours

The Kogod Undergraduate Advising office is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. For the quickest service, please email ksbadvising@american.edu, call our main number at (202) 885-1914, or visit us in KSB 106 on the first floor of the Kogod School of Business.

Who is My Academic Advisor?

Kogod Undergraduate Programs uses a team advising model that is set up to assist our students in the most efficient, effective way possible. 

In response to student requests to meet with the advisor of their choice and have a 24 hour turn around, we utilize a team model made up of four professional Academic Advisors. With this model, you have the flexibility to meet with any advisor who is available or, if you choose, you can schedule an appointment with a specific advisor.
