Academic Advising Center

What is Academic Advising?

  • We are here to help you reach your educational and career goals.
  • We'll advise you on course schedules and other educational experiences.
  • We'll help you understand the requirements and policies necessary to complete a degree in a timely manner.

How does Academic Advising work at Adams State?

  • Every degree-seeking student is assigned at least one advisor.
  • Students who have declared a major are assigned a faculty advisor in their department. Those students who are undeclared, and those students who are conditionally admitted, are assigned an advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
  • Transfer students are initially assigned to the Transfer Student Coordinator and, later, assigned an appropriate advisor based upon their field of study.

What is the Advising PIN and How Do I Get It?

  • It's a unique six-digit code generated each Fall and Spring semester for degree-seeking students.
  • Your PIN is required for registration. 
  • To obtain your PIN you must be advised by your assigned advisor.
