Academic Advising

Academic advisement is a collaborative educational process; students and their advisor are partners in meeting the essential learning goals that support student success. Academic advisement is not an event, but a process, with the student taking the lead and responsibility for their academic career; while the advisor provides the student with the tools, direction and appropriate referrals to assist students in meeting those goals.


RBS students now have the ability to make and manage their academic advisement appointments with the Run4Success – APPOINTMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. To make an appointment with your academic adviser, please click here.
