Your relationship with your academic advisor is a very important one. She or he will guide you with your selection of courses for the major and for General Education courses, help you to determine and define your career interests, and relate them to the various areas of study offered within the Department. Your academic advisor can also refer you to other persons who may better assist you with particular problems or questions you may have. We suggest you see your advisor at least twice each semester in addition to the time you will need to meet during Advising and Pre-registration. You are, of course, not limited to meeting with her/him on those occasions, particularly if you experience academic difficulty. Feel free to email your advisor at anytime with questions you may have.
You will be assigned one of the members of the Communication, Media, and Performance faculty as your academic advisor. Please check your MyFramingham account and you will see their name along with the location of their office. (Please note: your advisor’s name and the Department Chair’s name may both appear in your online account. The Chair is your advisor only if that name appears by itself.) Every effort will be made to match your advisor to your departmental area of focus (Communication Studies, Professional Communication, Media Production, and Performance). If you wish to change your academic advisor please obtain the correct form from the Registrar’s Office and present it to the Department Chair for signature.
Please remember that you are ultimately responsible for your academic career and advisors are here to assist and support you along the way to success!
