Academic Advising

The mission of academic advising at Fresno Pacific University is to provide guidance to students with the goal of obtaining an advanced degree. FPU strives to ensure that students have the necessary information for 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 Program Director 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 advising partnership between the Program Director and the student requires the participation and involvement of both parties as it is built over the student’s entire educational experience at the Fresno Pacific University.

Both the student and the Program Director will have clear responsibilities to ensure that the advising partnership is successful.
