To assist all students in planning and scheduling their academic programs, developing their talents, and pursuing their passions, several levels of advising are open to all students.
An academic advisor meets with each new student early in the first semester. Students who have not yet decided upon a major meet with the Director of Academic and Career Advising or the Director of the Student Success Center. Students who have decided upon a major meet with a faculty advisor in the academic department in which they have chosen to major. The student and the advisor go over the student’s transfer credit if applicable and preview the requirements to graduate from Maharishi University of Management. They plan a schedule of courses for the first year and discuss the student’s plans and goals for graduating.
See the list of academic advisors.
The graduation advisor meets with the student on an as-needed basis to advise the student on progress toward meeting the University’s graduation requirements. She can send the student a degree check by e-mail or other pertinent information as requested. The graduation advisor is available on most class days throughout the year to answer questions about classes, policies, and requirements and to help students understand and plan their progress toward meeting their academic goals.
Each undergraduate and graduate department provides academic advising for its majors. The Director of the Student Success Center and the Director of Career Services serve as the academic advisors for continuing students until the students declare a major. They also welcome students to continue to seek their guidance after they declare a major or if they are considering changing majors.
The Director of the Student Success Center meets with students who may be facing academic challenges to develop a plan to address those challenges and promote the student’s academic success. She also welcomes students to continue to seek her guidance after they declare a major or if they are considering changing majors.
By using all these resources, students are informed of degree requirements, policies, and options as they are scheduling their courses and progressing toward their degree and life goals.
