Academic Advising

DC Academic Advisors

The mission of the advising team at Fresno Pacific University is to provide guidance to students with the goal of obtaining a degree. We strive to ensure that students have the necessary information in their academic progress and registration, while supporting each student through their personal and spiritual journey. Our goal is to see each student through as they complete their educational goals. Advising is a collaborative educational process in which students and their advisors are partners in meeting the essential learning outcomes, ensuring student academic success, and outlining the steps for achievement of the students’ personal, academic, and career goals. This advisor/student partnership requires participation and involvement of both the advisor and the student as it is built over the student’s entire educational experience at the Fresno Pacific University. Both the student and the advisor have clear responsibilities for ensuring the advising partnership is successful (NACADA, 2004). Advisors have created a Moodle site for quick, online information for students.

Academic Coaching

Academic advisors provide students with academic coaching. This is a one-on-one, ongoing relationship through which guidance, accountability, feedback and encouragement are offered to help achieve higher levels of academic performance.
