Abstract

Retaining college students has emerged as a top priority for colleges and university administrator; however, colleges and universities fail to view academic advising as a key to student success. As an outcome of the 2014 HLC re-authorization of accreditation site visit, Olivet Nazarene University designed and and implemented a comprehensive academic advising assessment. Key findings suggested that advisors and students viewed academic advising as a series of loosely coordinated activities that may or not contribute to student success. There were statistically significant differences between student and and academic advisor perceptions of the nature and scope of academic advising sessions which may indicate the need for a systematized approach to the activities and evaluation of ONU academic advising activities.
