Academic Advising Description/Definition

Academic advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning. (NACADA, 2004)

Academic advising is a collaborative process whose success or failure will be determined by the active involvement of both advisor and advisee.
