Certificate in Academic Advising
The Certificate in Academic Advising was developed in 2007 by Elizabeth Sproston and Amber Fetner, two professional advisors in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. In 2009, the Academic Advising Coordinating Council (AACC) began directing the Certificate in collaboration with Career Development and Training. You will find information about the certificate program, including course offerings and requirements, here.
Thirty academic advisors received a Certificate in Academic Advising at the 2013 Fall Academic Advising Workshop in November sponsored by the Academic Advising Coordinating Council and the Office of the Vice President for Instruction. Certificates were awarded to advisors who completed a six-course advising program over the last year.
