The mission of the Rocky Mountain College advising program is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that lead to successful completion of a degree and self-directed, life-long learning. The academic advising mission supports the overall mission of Rocky Mountain College.
Upon entering Rocky Mountain College, students are assigned a faculty academic advisor based on their area of academic interest. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors frequently to review graduation requirements, plan class schedules and discuss their futures.
Faculty have the primary responsibility for academic advising, though students may also look to RMC's helpful and experienced staff for advice and guidance. The student's primary academic advisor will have expertise in the student's field of study. Secondary advisors might also be assigned to some students, including those who are pursuing a secondary field of study, international students, and those who qualify for Services for Academic Success (SAS). Authorization from the primary academic advisor is required for student registration and schedule changes.
