The Advising and Academic Enhancement team works to ensure high-quality academic advising for all students. Our office coordinates academic support to students through tutoring services, skill building workshops, and academic success courses (ACAD).
ADVISING: Boise State students are served primarily by advisors within their declared major. AAE provides academic planning and advising to students who:
- do not have a declared major, are exploring majors, or are looking to change majors
- are not sure how to contact their advisor in a department
- are on academic probation or seeking reinstatement
- are filing a dismissal appeal
COORDINATION: Our Student Success Coordinators partner with advisors and coordinators in the colleges and departments to ensure high-quality advising. AAE provides training and resources, coordinates communication, and works to identify and address unmet needs related to advising and student success. AAE staff serves as liaisons among and between units and departments on student success related initiatives and programs.
ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT: AAE directly manages or promotes free academic support services for all Boise State students.
