Resources for Advisors

This website provides advisors access to forms, policy information, training resources, professional development activities, calendars, and tools that support the advising process at NC State. Resources are routinely added and updated to keep abreast of changing needs. Please let us know if you identify needs that have not been addressed on the site. We are glad to have your support in making the site the best it can be for the Wolfpack advising community.


Advising Philosophy

Advising is a partnership between student and advisor that is grounded in open and timely communication regarding personal goals, self-knowledge, and information about majors, careers, and university policies. Advisors do not prescribe answers or majors for the student; rather, we prompt the student with the questions and resources needed to explore interests, abilities, and values, and to set and reach their personal, academic, and career goals. While academic advising is a collaborative process, and we strive to support student success, the ultimate responsibility for an advisee’s educational experience rests with the student advisee.

State Advisors Google Group

The NC State Advisors Google Group allows faculty, staff, and administrators to share information and discuss academic issues relevant to the advising of prospective and current undergraduate students.

Information that advisors can pass along to their advisees, discussion or posting of policy changes, best practices, and on-and off-campus development opportunities are all appropriate.

Academic Recovery Program

The Academic Recovery Program is designed to help students enhance their academic experience for the fall semester. Each student that participates in the program will create an individualized Academic Success Plan for the fall semester to meet their own personal and academic goals.  The program focuses on self-awareness (strengths exploration, self-management, and personal values), major and career goals (career assessment, major and career exploration), academic strategies (goal setting, learning strategies, academic resources, campus policies and procedures) and campus resources (tutorial support, counseling center and other resources for wellness).

Additionally, for students who are considering changing majors, we can assist in identifying and transitioning to a new program. We could also discuss moving into our Inter-College Transfer (ICT) advising program to work with a cross-curricular advisor until the student is to transfer into a new degree program.
