Purdue Advising Mission Statement:
Our mission is to partner with students, faculty, staff, departments, and administration to empower students to develop and implement an individualized plan for academic success, personal and career development, while integrating learning and enrichment within the University and community, as well as assisting students in understanding the nature, purpose, and value of higher education.

Goals of Advising:
My primary goal is to provide you with opportunities for success by assisting you with your educational goals through-out your educational journey here at Purdue.

This syllabus is a tool designed to outline the advising experience. Advising is essential to the educational mission of our institution. Included in the syllabus is a set of student expectations and responsibilities as well as a set of expectations and responsibilities of me as your advisor. This syllabus is to be used as a resource and guide. Refer to it often throughout the semester.

Learning Objectives:
By participating in academic advising you will:

  • Identify fields of study that are consistent with your interests, abilities, and life goals.
  • Know how to navigate myPurduePlan (MMP) and locate your degree worksheet.
  • Develop and implement a meaningful educational plan using the Student Educational Planner (SEP).
  • Know how to locate University policies and procedures regarding registration, academic standing, and student conduct.
  • Know where and how to access appropriate support services to accommodate your unique needs.
  • Develop an awareness of your own personal responsibility within the advising process.

Policies 

Email 

Your Purdue email account, no other email account, is the only means of communication between faculty and staff. Please do not have this forwarded to your personal email. You will miss important information that is sent out to large groups of students. This is also the Professor’s way of communicating about grades, class cancellations, etc. If you send me an email from your personal account, I will not respond.

Please prepare before sending me an email. As I want to answer all questions, I have many students.  I ask that you utilize your resources such as the syllabus, instructional emails, or advising newsletters to answer your question if possible.  Also, please try to ask all your questions in a single email. When multiple emails are sent it is difficult to understand requests and questions. It is also easy for questions to get missed when replying.  However, if you find that your e-mail is becoming lengthy, it may be best to make an appointment with me to discuss in person.  Please make sure you sign your emails. If you need assistance adding a signature to ensure all emails are signed, I can help you with this.

Appointments

How to make a non-registration appointment.

I have walk in hours four days a week at designated times, but please utilize these times for quick questions that can be answered in a 5 minute time span in order to allow all students to access me when needed.  If you have multiple questions or need more time to meet with me, please make an appointment.  Scheduled Appointments can be made by either calling or stopping by MA 231 or using this link: https://purdue.campus.eab.com/. During Registration times (mid fall and mid spring), there will be specific directions from me on how and when to make appointments specifically for registration.

Registration Appointments (usually mid-fall and mid-spring)

You are required to meet with me, in person, once a semester to discuss registration.  You will not receive your PIN unless you meet with me during your designated times to register.  You will receive a detailed e-mail from me on when and how to schedule your registration appointment.  If you schedule your registration appointment during the incorrect designated time you will be asked to reschedule. If you no-show (cancel the day of the appointment or fail to show up to the appointment) twice in a semester, you will be required to wait until open registration to meet with me and obtain your PIN. I understand things come up like sickness and emergencies, just be respectful of my time and let me know as soon as possible if you need to re-schedule.

You are required to be prepared for your registration appointments. This includes:

  • Reviewing your degree requirements and plan of study
  • Reviewing the Schedule of Classes
  • Updating your Student Educational Planner (SEP)
  • Finding your time-ticket on myPurdue
  • Filling out an Activity Log (bring this to your appointment)
  • Checking your degree audit worksheet in my PurduePlan for any discrepancies
  • Preparing a list of questions
  • Preparing a rough list of courses you are interested in that meet your College of Science Core requirements

 

Check-in

You will check-in for all appointments and walk-in times in the Main Office, MATH 231. 

Academic Probation

You are required to meet with me in person following placement on academic probation. This meeting is to occur during the first two weeks of the semester following placement on probation. At that time, we will work on an academic plan to assist you in meeting your academic goals, raising your GPA, and return to good academic standing.

Please arrive on time and prepared for your appointments. If you arrive late or unprepared for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
