The primary purpose of Academic Advising is assisting the student in completing the academic program successfully as well as remediate any problems the student might face.
Academic Affairs assigns academic advisors at the beginning of each academic year for each year. Their role is to follow up students academically and to coordinate between course directors and academic affairs to resolve academic issues and deal with the underachieving students and provide them necessary help to improve their performance. Also, Academic Affairs has set the Underachieving Students Committee in which struggling students are monitored for their performance and given advice regarding their schedules.
