"Based on a system of shared responsibility, Chadron State College seeks to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with career goals and instill a desire for lifelong learning." -Chadron State College Advising Committee

Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising is assisting students to share the responsibility for academic planning with the faculty advisors. The goal is to encourage students to find their own answers and utilize their advisors as sounding boards for their educational goals.

Although the student is ultimately responsible for meeting all conditions and requirements of Chadron State College, faculty engage in student advising to assist students in reaching their educational goals. All students are assigned to an advisor in their related field following the start of their first semester at Chadron State College.

Students who are undecided are assigned an advisor and are encouraged to visit Career Services  for career exploration. Students are encouraged to declare a major plan of study prior to the second year of study. Students can request a Change of Major and a Change of Advisor online.
