Provide accurate academic advising to freshmen and transfer students who have declared a major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The entry-level academic advisor is primarily an implementer of a developmental advising model that involves a tailored series of interactions and communications using advising tools and systems designed to address the specific needs of the students served by the CLAS Office of Advising and Student Services.

The advisor must have the experience, education, and background necessary to serve the educational function of an advisor, however he or she is doing so in a context developed by the Office and in collaboration with more experienced colleagues and the supervisor of the office.
