On entering a degree program, you will be assigned an advisor, who is a faculty member of your department.
Though Antioch University New England is small enough that you will come to know most, if not all, faculty in your department, your advisor plays an especially important role. The extent of this role will vary from department to department, but certain elements remain constant.
Your advisor is the faculty member directly responsible for consulting with you throughout your educational processes. You may expect to work with other faculty members on your internship or practicum, SIS projects, curriculum design, and regular academic course work. However, your advisor will be expected to work with you to design your full program, and to discuss your registration each semester.
If during the course of your time at Antioch you wish to change your advisor, you should discuss this request with him/her and your department chairperson. Such changes, often come as a consequence of your increasing contact and affinity with another member of the faculty. This change can usually be accommodated if the faculty member to whom you wish to transfer is willing and is not already committed to a full advising load.
Questions about compliance with degree requirements, certification requirements, advanced standing applications may be directed to the registrar as well as your advisor.
