Undergraduate Academic Advising

Supports students so that they might succeed in their pursuit of undergraduate degrees, their achievement of productive and satisfying careers, and their attainment of life goals. While course selection and registration are important aspects of advising, Radford University endorses a developmental approach, in which students are assisted in obtaining knowledge and developing skills that help them better understand themselves and their potential.
