AHS Advising

Academic Advising is an important component of a student's academic success and students are encouraged to develop a relationship with their advisor. Kansas State has a university-wide academic advising syllabus. This document is helpful for students to understand what an academic advisor does and both the student's and advisor's responsibilities in this important relationship.
