Academic Advising and Course Registration

Enhancing success in undergraduate study.

Academic Advising

The Director of Academic Programs, Amanda Crombie, manages academic advising for Batten students. Students meet with her at least once each year to discuss academic requirements and progress toward the degree. She also processes all College of Arts and Sciences second major and minor declarations and verifies completion of these requirements for the degree. The Assistant Director of Academic Programs and Registrar, Kristine Nelson, advises students interested in studying abroad.

Course Registration

Students may contact the Director of Academic Programs or the Assistant Director of Academic Programs and Registrar at any time for assistance. They maintain all student academic records, manage the electronic degree audit, and verify the completion of academic requirements for degree conferral. In addition, they monitor all student progress every semester and counsel students individually as needed. Students are invited to schedule an appointment or simply stop by their offices at any time, for any reason.
