At Roane State, academic advising is a shared responsibility of the student and the faculty advisor. During the first semester of enrollment, students are assigned a faculty advisor from their major area of study. The advisor works closely with the student in determining his/her education goals and in developing a plan for completing these goals. Students can view the name of their faculty advisor through their RaiderNet account.
All students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor at least once a year. Not all RSCC locations have full-time faculty advisors for each major. Students need to contact his/her advisor to schedule an appointment well in advance of registration time periods. All sophomores are required to meet with their advisor to plan for graduation and to complete the Intent to Graduate form.
