For Faculty Advisors
Each faculty advisor serves as an area specialist for students in their department. Advisors should be familiar not only with their departmental programs but with the required University Core Curriculum
A list of your current advisees can be found at BSU@Work
The Degree Analysis Progress Report (DAPR)
is a key tool in following the path to degree completion. Reading and understanding the DAPR is crucial in order to use it effectively as an advising tool. Faculty advisors should be ready to point out and explain what the boxes on the DAPR mean and explain the significance of the "No" boxes and "OK" boxes.
Your role as a "faculty advisor" is very important, not only to your students, your department but to the Advising Center as well. Your Advising Center Coordinator
can be of assistance in your crucial role as a faculty advisor.
The Learning Center
offers free assistance and tutors for any of the "University Core" courses and selected other classes not in the core. In addition, encourage students to avail themselves of the award winning services from the Ball State Career Center
