The Advising Center, as part of the Academic Services Center (ASC), takes a proactive approach to academic advising and student development services for full-time undergraduate students. The Center administers the University’s dual-advising services for first-year students; provides advising support services to the various academic departments and all full-time faculty advisors and serves as the clearinghouse for information about Eastern’s academic programs, policies, and procedures. Students are encouraged to visit the office for assistance with academic planning, course scheduling, assessment testing, registering for courses, faculty expectations, and majors/careers. The center helps students apply the information they learn to their own unique educational goals and personal circumstances. In addition, the Advising Center administers and coordinates the following academic and administrative support programs and services:
• First-Year advising services
• Placement test program
• New student academic advising and registration services
• New student academic orientation services
• Academic Support and Assistance Program for probationary students

• Major/advisor assignment process
• Academic appeal and dismissal process
• Academic information and referral services
• Transfer evaluation of the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum
• Cross Registration Program (aka. Inter-institutional program - course enrollment at other state supported colleges and universities)
