Undergraduate advising

The College of Global Futures Student Services Center provides quality academic advising and support services to promote student success. We are here for undergraduate students who are pursuing or are interested in academic programs offered through our three schools:

  • School for the Future of Innovation in Society
  • School of Sustainability
  • School of Complex Adaptive Systems

Undergraduate advising philosophy

Our goal is to assist students in achieving their personal, educational, and career goals while becoming self-directed, life-long learners. As your academic advisors, we are here to:

  • Help you navigate your undergraduate education at ASU.
  • Assist you in setting achievable academic and career goals.
  • Facilitate your understanding of university and academic program requirements, policies and procedures.
  • Teach you how to find available resources both inside and outside of ASU that will enhance your education.
  • Assist you in identifying other experiences that will strengthen your ability to obtain your goals.
  • Evaluate your progress toward degree completion.

Responsibility of the advisee

Students have responsibilities when it comes to the advising they receive as undergraduates in our programs.

  • Obtain and utilize the appropriate information needed to assume final responsibility for your own course scheduling, program planning, and successful completion of degree program requirements.
  • Learn the university and school policies, procedures, and guidelines.
  • Learn and understand the requirements for your degree and major.
  • Be prepared when meeting or contacting an advisor.
  • Seek assistance and resources for all aspects of your undergraduate experience, not just when you encounter a problem.
  • Consult with your academic advisor regularly, or at least once each semester.

Drop-in advising is for quick questions (typically 5-10 minutes). The advisors will help students with complicated situations to schedule a follow-up appointment if more time is needed.
