In the School of Family Studies and Human Services, the Advising Center is staffed by two full-time professional advisors, Suzanne Reese and Jill Parker. Advising offices are located in Justin 305 and 306. 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 course (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.
