Academic Advising Center

Mission Statement

The Academic Advising Center helps prepare students for success in scholastic, personal, and professional life in the academic setting by assisting students in the development of skills to define and achieve their academic goals.

By partnering with support staff, administration, and academic department faculty, the Academic Advising Center works with students to identify the appropriate major for their stated goals and create individualized educational plans for academic success. Using this approach, Academic Advising Center staff will:

  • Build collaborative relationships with students,
  • Provide timely and accurate information about academic programs,
  • Make appropriate referrals to campus resources,
  • Emphasize the idea that “ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans and life goals rests with the individual student.” (NACADA, 2003)


Welcome to Cameron University’s Academic Advising Center, a central location for academic information and resources for students. We provide academic advising services to Cameron University freshmen, undecided, and new transfer students. We are committed to providing timely and accurate advice for students so they succeed academically.

As a new freshman or transfer student, you will be assigned an advisor based on the major you choose.

Once you are ready to leave the Academic Advising Center, we will work with your major department to assist you as you transition to your departmental advisor.
