In the School of Family Studies and Human Services, the Advising Center is staffed by full-time professional advisor, Suzanne Reese. The Advising Center is located in 305 Justin Hall. All Human Development and Family Science (HDFS) and Personal Financial Planning (PFP) undergraduate students are advised through the center. Undergraduate students in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) are also advised through the center until they reach junior standing. At that time, students in CSD are assigned an advisor in the CSD Program and must meet eligibility criteria to enroll in CSD courses (junior standing and cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better).
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.
