What is the purpose of my academic advisor?

You will be assigned an academic advisor when you are accepted to Plymouth State University. If you have declared a major, your advisor will be a faculty member in that major discipline. Students who are Undecided to major will be assigned to faculty and staff who advise this particular group of students. You can find out who your advisor is by logging into your personal account in myPlymouth under academic information.

You and your advisor should get to know each other. Call, e-mail and/or stop by your advisor’s office frequently. Your advisor will assist you in mapping out your semester schedule as well as creating your “Four-year plan.” In addition, you and your advisor will discuss your major, career and life goals.
