Academic Support

Academic Advising

Academic Advising is provided in each college. The Academic Advisors’ goal is to help students successfully complete their degree program. They provide assistance with registration for classes, academic planning, referrals to campus resources, and understanding of policies and procedures. Academic Advisors assist students who experience challenges and can make suggestions on study skills and time management. Academic Advisors encourage students to use them as a first point of contact should issues, concerns, or difficulties arise.

Faculty Mentors

Faculty Mentors provide support to students within their discipline and help students with course content, career information, research, and internship possibilities. Both Academic Advisors and Faculty Mentors work to build supportive relationships with students, encourage them to get involved in the college community, and assist with educational, career, and life decisions.

The mission of the Undergraduate Research Institute (URI) is to promote intellectual inquiry, discovery, and collaboration both in and out of the classroom. In cooperation with faculty, staff, government, and industry, the URI creates opportunities for undergraduate students to gain hands-on experience and expertise through innovation in their respective fields. Each year, the URI awards and disburses over $100,000 in grant money to individual students and teams in support of research and development. These grants allow students to work with mentors on real-world problems, to present their work at conferences, and to compete in national and international design competitions. Students report their findings at URI Discovery, an annual event in late spring that celebrates and exhibits student innovation. The URI hosts professional development programs and helps facilitate the identification and management of industry partnerships, external grant, scholarship, and fellowship opportunities for students.  For more information about research-related opportunities, funding, events, and available resources, please visit the Prescott URI website at (http://prescott.erau.edu/research/) or contact the Assistant Dean of Research, Anne Boettcher (boettcha@erau.edu).  The URI is located on the ground floor of the Hazy Library and Learning Center (Rooms 117 and 119).

Student Accessibility Services 

Christine & Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Library & Learning Center – Building 43, Room 109

The University is committed to creating an accessible academic community. The Student Accessibility Services (SAS) office grants accommodations for equal access to qualifying students with disabilities who request them. It is recommended that students seeking accommodations should contact the SAS office, by phone or email, as early as possible prior to the start of classes. Students may apply for SAS registration at any time throughout the semester, but allowing plenty of time will ensure that all accommodations are in place by the first day of classes.

SAS staff will respond to calls and emails within twenty-four hours or on the following business day if the call or email was received outside of regular business hours. Students will then be guided through the SAS registration process, which includes a description of the documentation required to support a request for accommodations. Students seeking information may also visit the SAS website at ERAU.edu.

Students who think they may have a disability, but who have never been evaluated, are encouraged to contact the SAS office for information on how to proceed. Diagnostic testing is not available through the University, but a list of area specialists can be provided. Costs associated with evaluative testing are the responsibility of the student. Students needing temporary accommodations due to an injury or short-term illness should contact SAS as soon as possible to schedule a meeting.

Please note: academic programs that are FAA certified are subject to FAA regulations, and students are expected to meet program standards with or without accommodations.

If you have any questions about specific program standards, you should consult with your academic advisor or contact Career Services at prcareer@erau.edu or 1-928-777-6276.

Students with concerns regarding approved accommodations should promptly contact SAS to discuss ways of addressing them. Students who believe they have experienced discrimination based on a disability should follow the grievance procedure outlined in this Handbook under “Student Rights and Responsibilities.”

You may contact SAS at 1-928-777-6751 or prdss@erau.edu.
