The Academic Advisement Center is the College’s main resource center and the primary academic advisement provider for all students: new, currently attending or returning to the College. The Center is led by a Director and staffed by a core of trained professional advisors and teaching faculty who serve on a rotating basis. Current and returning students are seen on a walk-in basis and via appointments. The Office of Academic Advisement, located on the fifth floor is responsible for the overall coordination and direction of the advising program at the College. (If required, students may be referred to the Learning Resource Center (LRC) for tutorial assistance.)
The mission of the academic advising program at Mandl is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their academic goals. Further, it is to fully inform students regarding requirements in their areas of concentration and to expose students to the variety of course and degree options offered by the College.
Earning a college degree requires the student to make a commitment to academic achievement and to make the necessary educational decisions. Academic Advisors assist all students with wide range of concerns from educational decision-making to personal, social or family problem solving. The Advisement Center advisors listen to students and offer help in the following areas:
- counsel students with low grade point averages

- changing area of concentration (major)
- review of academic standing
- test anxiety and relaxation techniques
