Holistic Academic Advising

Mission: Holistic Academic Advising provides students a professional advising experience that is inclusive, welcoming, respectful, and contributes to students’ feelings of belonging to the HFU family. Advisors assist students in an intentional exploration and proactive planning of educational opportunities designed to support degree completion enriching students’ academic and life goals.

Starting in Fall 2023, new first-year students are assigned a professional advisor based on their major or undeclared status. Students remain with this advisor through sophomore year. Transfer students will meet with a professional advisor for their initial registration, depending on their class level will be assigned a professional advisor or faculty advisor in their program. Once students are preparing to enter junior status they will be assigned a faculty advisor.
