DePaul Academic Advising Network > About Us > Statement on Academic Advising
Academic Advising at DePaul helps students achieve their educational, personal, and career goals by providing guidance and assistance in the decision-making process. Academic Advising is most effective when all participants anticipate their future needs, commit to the process, do their part, and then reflect on their results. Students should work closely with their advisors to plan workable educational goals, to understand the degree options and requirements, to understand the financial implications of their decisions, to assess their strengths and challenges as scholars, and to clarify realistic career objectives for themselves upon graduation.
Students bear ultimate responsibility for decisions and actions that determine their success at DePaul University.
Advisors are responsible for helping students improve their decision making skills.
The university is responsible for providing the infrastructure for students, faculty, and staff to support effective advising.
