The mission of the academic advising program at Springfield College is to assist each student in exploring learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom while successfully negotiating the academic rigors of the college environment. In addition, academic advising assists students in formulating and following an educational plan that prepares the student for leadership in service to humanity and is consistent with the student’s values, abilities, and career and life goals. 
 
The staff of the Academic Advising Center fosters that mission through their work with undergraduate students, faculty, and staff in the School of Arts, Sciences and Professional Studies; the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation; and the School of Health Sciences and Rehabilitation Studies.

Use your degree audit to monitor your progress toward graduation. It should include all your requirements for your major, GenEds, GPA, minor, etc. To open your degree audit, go to My Profile -> My Degree Audit -> View All Details -> Degree Audit PDF.

 
Be sure to open the PDF version, as it's more complete and easier to read than the online view.  If you have any questions about your audit, contact your advisor or any of the Advising Center staff.
