To assist all students in planning and scheduling their academic programs, developing their talents, and pursuing their passions, several levels of advising are open to all students.
- An academic advisor meets with each new student early in the first semester. Students who have not yet decided upon a major meet with the Director of Academic Advising in the Enrollment Center. Students who have decided upon a major meet with an academic advisor in the academic department in which they have chosen to major. The student and the advisor go over the student’s transfer credit if applicable and preview the requirements to graduate from Maharishi University of Management. They plan a schedule of courses for the first year and discuss the student’s plans and goals for graduating.
The Director of Student Success meets with students who may be facing academic challenges to develop a plan to address those challenges and promote the student’s academic success.
- The Graduation Director meets with the student on an as-needed basis to advise the student on progress toward meeting the his or her graduation requirements. The Graduation Director can send the student a degree audit by email or other pertinent information as requested. The Graduation Director is available on most class days throughout the year to answer questions about classes, policies, and requirements and to help students understand and plan their progress toward meeting their academic goals.
By using all these resources, students are informed of degree requirements, policies, and options as they are scheduling their courses and progressing toward their degree and life goals.
