The mission of the Undergraduate Academic
Advising Center (UAAC) is to ensure that informed,
effective, and easily accessible
academic advising, which addresses individual
needs and interests, is available to every
undergraduate student at Towson University. The Academic Advising Center coordinates advising at Towson University, maintaining a staff of professional advisers and working with academic departments to recruit faculty for the First-Year Experience (FYE) program.
If you are a
freshman, you will participate in
FYE, a year-long program to orient you to the university and its resources, enhancing your educational experience. Your adviser will be a professional adviser, professional Student Affairs staff member, or a faculty member who has completed the Faculty Institute in Advising. That FYE adviser will be assigned to you for the year.
If you are not a freshman, you will participate in the
Academic Advising Program, and your adviser will be a professional adviser (open majors) or a faculty adviser in your major field.
You will need to declare a major by the time you accrue 60 units.
Student Academic Advisors are an integral component of the advising staff in the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center. Under FERPA guidelines Student Academic Advisors (SAAs) provide advising to students regarding general academic issues/policies and those related to majors.
