Academic Advising and Support

The faculty and staff of Millsaps College believe that sound advising of students regarding their academic program is an integral part of our educational mission. While it is ultimately the responsibility of each student to fulfill all of the requirements necessary to the completion of their chosen major or minor, we believe that it is our responsibility to make available appropriate assistance in course selection, choice of major or minor subjects, and selecting any collateral preparation needed to enhance a student's professional and personal potentials.

Academic advisors are mentors to their students, helping them to understand the value of academic planning not only as a means of fulfilling degree requirements, but also in the context of setting personal, professional, and intellectual goals and bringing them to fruition. Academic planning is a natural part of the liberal arts education, empowering and enabling students to take responsibility for shaping their own lives.
