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 their first semester. Students who have chosen a major meet with an academic
advisor in that academic department. Students who are undecided upon a major
meet with the Director of Career Services or of the Student Success Center. The
student and the academic advisor go over the student’s transfer credit if applicable and
preview the academic 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 Graduation Director meets with the student on an
as-needed basis to advise the student on progress toward meeting the
University’s graduation requirements. She can send the student by email a degree check 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.
- Each undergraduate and graduate department provides academic advising for its majors. The Director of the Student Success Center and the
Director of Career Services serve as the academic advisors for continuing
students until the students declare a major. They also welcome students to
continue to seek their guidance after they declare a major or if they are
considering changing majors.
Director of the Student Success Center meets with students who may be facing
academic challenges to develop a plan to address those challenges and promote
the student’s academic success.
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.
