Finding/Changing Advisors and Majors

Finding/Changing Advisors and Majors

The Advising Resource Center staff is comprised of “general” advisors who can assist students after they have been accepted to Roane State.

You will be assigned a faculty advisor who specializes in your major or program of study. The advisor assignment will remain the same unless you change your major or your faculty advisor is reassigned. This could mean that the advisor is located at a campus other than the one the student attends. You should contact your advisor through e-mail, phone consultation, individual or group meetings.

When Are Advisors Assigned?

Advisors are assigned during your first month of classes, as long as your major is a degree or certificate.

If your major is non-degree seeking (usually the major contains the word "special"), you will not be assigned a faculty advisor.

Find Your Advisor and Major

Your major and your advisor's name and contact information are right at the top of RaiderNet after you have logged in.  Example:

Need to Change Your Major?

If your major is not accurate on this screen, you can complete the Change of Major Form.  Instructions are provided on the form.

Once your change of major is processed, you will be assigned a new faculty advisor appropriate for your new major.

Need a Different Advisor?

Students have the option of requesting a change of advisor by completing the Change of Advisor Form. Please complete, sign, and return the form to the front office at the campus you attend or you can fax it to (865) 882-4683.
