Elon requests quiet period for academic advising

Connor Cavanaugh

Elon University has recently introduced new policy that asks faculty, staff and administrators to keep as much free time as possible for academic advising during the week of Oct. 30-Nov. 6, the week before preregistration.

Unlike most universities, Elon faculty and staff advise students within their field of expertise, and help students make choices about their schedules leading up to preregistration.

“One of the key activities we value on campus is the academic advising conversations with students held in advance of preregistration,” said Steven House, Elon University Provost. “We ask that during this week, we all recognize the important work of faculty and staff who are advising students one-on-one by considering not scheduling additional meetings.”

The registrar’s office has also added new features to OnTrack, like the Elon Experiences Transcripts now compiled for easy viewing.

“Elon students need support as they plan for, reflect upon, and evaluate their own progress in this great learning adventure,” said House.
