We are committed to helping undergraduate students fulfill their potential by working with them to find accurate academic information, impactful learning opportunities and solutions to challenges they may face.
All Wilson College of Textiles undergraduate students are required to meet with their assigned academic advisor at least one time per semester to discuss registration and enrollment for the following term and remove the advisement hold. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor more frequently if desired or if they have questions. Advisor assignments and contact information can be found in MyPack Portal under the Planning and Enrollment Tile. Your advisor should inform you how to schedule appointments with them.
NC State’s Definition of Academic Advising:
Academic advising is an intentional process designed to support students as they develop and pursue educational, career, and personal goals.
The ultimate goal of the student-advisor partnership is for students to increase their personal agency and critical thinking skills, and apply both to their life choices in college and beyond.
Academic advisors empower students to make timely and well-informed choices by helping them connect with university and community resources, identify opportunities, assess alternatives, and predict possible consequences of their actions.
The ultimate responsibility for developing and pursuing life goals and for creating and executing educational plans rests with the student.
