One of the ways in which the CLC promotes academic excellence and supports students’ success is through Academic Advising.
Academic Advisors are professional staff and/or faculty members who partner with students to help them plan and organize their academic experience in accordance with their present and future goals. Academic Advisors regularly meet with every first-year and transfer student to guide them through their transition to Unity College. Advisors also help the student troubleshoot academic-related issues that arise and refer the student to appropriate campus and community resources as appropriate.
First-Year Academic Advising
If you are a new freshman or transfer student, your academic advisor will be your Unity Experience (or Unity Transfer Experience) instructor. Your academic advisor will reach out to you several times throughout the first semester to ensure that you are transitioning successfully within the Unity College community. Advisors also schedule half-hour, face-to-face meetings with each student to help them develop a multi-year academic plan based upon their intended major.
If you are a transfer student, you will be assigned a first-year advisor located in the Collaborative Learning Center. Your academic advisor can discuss the credits transferred and get you on the right track to finish your degree. We offer multiple 30-minute face-to-face meeting, assist and develop multi-year plans according to your class and help you transition.
- Declaring a Major and Minor: During second-semester registration, your academic advisor will contact you to discuss your academic and professional interests to help you decide on a major(s) or minor(s).
- Changing Your Major: If you are interested in changing majors, an academic advisor will guide you through the process.
- Connections to Campus Resources: Academic Advisors can help you set academic and professional goals and introduce you to campus resources that will help students achieve success both inside and beyond the classroom.
