The CAE offers students a variety of advising resources. Student Success Specialists serve as freshmen advisors for students entering under the Opportunity Program. We also assist as phone advisors for freshmen who can’t attend our advising sessions during Cru Camp. A Student Success Specialist will be happy to sit down with you at any time during your UMHB journey to discuss degree plans, GPA calculations, class scheduling options, help you set academic goals, and help you work out many other advising issues that you may encounter. Once a student declares a major, they will be assigned to a faculty advisor. This faculty advisor will serve as the primary point of contact for students during their time at UMHB; the CAE will only be for supplementary advising services.
Academic Advising at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor provides students a resource to achieve and enhance their educational, personal, and career goals. Academic Advisors will provide students with assistance and guidance throughout their college career. Academic Advising requires both the advisor and advisee to work together throughout a student’s time at UMHB. Students must work with their advisor to plan and maintain educational goals, understand degree requirements, understand their consequences and financial implications of decisions they make, discover strengths and challenges they may face as a student, and develop realistic career objectives for themselves upon graduation.
