School of Architecture and Construction Management
The Architecture Department has two Advisors. The ACM Professional Advisor works with those students who are taking Design Foundation studio classes and those that are taking general core classes prior to beginning their Professional Architecture coursework. These students are expected to meet with their advisor no less than once a semester. These meetings are designed to ensure students understand the requirements for movement into the Professional Architecture Program and are on track at all times. For those students wishing to take an additional year to complete core classes, it is critical that they work with the Professional Advisor to ensure classes taken during that year are applicable to the Architecture path of study. Advising meetings can also be scheduled to discuss registration and scheduling questions, to identify campus resources, for transcript reviews, information regarding SPSU and/or departmental policies and procedures, DegreeWorks questions, academic and non-academic topic impacting academic progress, academic performance issues, change of major, and when dropping or withdrawing from classes is being considered. This advisor also serves as a liaison between faculty and students as needed. Once a student enters the Professional Architecture Program, The Professional Program Advisor becomes the student’s Advisor.
Students in the Construction Management program who have completed less than 60 hours of coursework are expected to meet with the ACM Professional Advisor each semester. These meetings are designed to create a plan of study for future terms, discuss progress toward graduation, ensure pre-requisites are being taken during the appropriate terms and that core classes are being completed. Additional meetings may be scheduled to discuss registration and schedule questions, questions regarding DegreeWorks, transcript reviews, academic and non-academic concerns that may be impacting academic progress, to identify campus resources, and SPSU and/or departmental policies and procedures. Once a student’s classification changes to that of Junior, a faculty advisor will be assigned; however, the Professional Advisor is available to assist with any of the above concerns as needed. The Professional Advisor also serves as the liaison between SPSU students and the International Facilities
Management Association (IFMA).
