To assist all students in planning and scheduling their academic programs, developing their talents, and pursuing their passions, several levels of advising are open to all students.
Each undergraduate and graduate department provide academic advising for its majors. Academic advisors meet with students during orientation and then early in their first semester. Students who have decided upon a major meet with a faculty advisor in the academic department in which they have chosen to major, and students who have not yet decided upon a major meet with the Director of Academic Advising. The student and the advisor go over the student’s transfer credit if applicable and preview the requirements to graduate from Maharishi International University. They discuss the student’s goals and plan a schedule of courses for the first year.
See the list of academic advisors.
The graduation advisor meets with students on an as-needed basis to advise them on progress toward meeting the University’s graduation requirements. She can send students a degree check by e-mail or other pertinent information as requested. The graduation advisor is available on most class days throughout the year to answer questions about classes, policies, and requirements and to help students understand and plan their progress toward meeting their academic goals.
The Director Academic Support meets with students who may be facing academic challenges to develop a plan to address those challenges and promote the student’s academic success. She also welcomes students to continue to seek her guidance after they declare a major or if they are considering changing majors.
By using all these resources, students receive support and information about university requirements, policies, and course options as they progress toward their degree and life goals.
