Academic Advising

Hawaii‘i Pacific University believes that academic advising is an integral part of a student's educational experience. As advisors, we are committed to preparing students for success in the academic setting by assisting students in the development of skills to define and achieve their academic goals. Our cohort advising model enables students to develop a collaborative working relationship with a professional advisor. Through mentorship, students are able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career plans.
