Academic Advising & Student Services
Bumpers College Advising Mission
Enhance the educational experience and maximize opportunities for students in the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food & Life Sciences.
Therefore, we are committed to a strong, effective academic advising program. Advising plays a significant role in the developmental process of educating students for lifelong learning. The advising relationship is a partnership between student and advisor and is dependent on effective communication and regular contact. This partnership has shared responsibilities which culminate in student success.
In addition to advising, the Bumpers College Student Services team is here to answer questions, address concerns and offer support to you as you grow from new student to graduate. Our door is always open!
