Academic Advisement

Student Success Operations (SSO)

Worldwide Academic Advisors are assigned based on the student's college affiliation (COAS, COA, COB) and primary program of study. 

US Military Worldwide Campus Operations - Europe Tri-Services/PACOM

For students assigned to a Worldwide Campus location in Europe or PACOM, the primary point of contact is their campus staff or Campus Director at their Campus home location. 

The Student Success Operations (SSO) and Europe/PACOM teams consist of highly qualified Academic Advisors who are assigned to students at the time of admission and will maintain that relationship through degree completion. The Academic Advisor aims to support and empower students to make informed decisions about their education, career, and personal development. They serve as a valuable resource to help students navigate their educational journey and achieve success. Their responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Educational Planning: Advisors help students plan their academic path, select appropriate courses, and create a schedule that aligns with their academic and career goals. They may also assist in choosing majors and minors. 
  • Degree Requirements: Advisors guide students on the requirements for their chosen degree programs, ensuring that they understand and fulfill all necessary coursework, exams, and other academic obligations. 
  • Course Selection: Advisors help students choose courses that match their interests, skills, and degree requirements. They provide information on prerequisite courses and suggest elective options. 
  • Academic Policies: Advisors inform students about academic policies, procedures, and regulations of the institution. 
  • Goal Setting: Advisors work with students to set short-term and long-term academic and career goals. They guide how to achieve these goals and may assist in developing strategies to overcome challenges. 
  • Resource Referral: Academic Advisors connect students with resources and support services available, such as tutoring, career services, and more. 
  • Monitoring Progress: advisors track students' academic progress and intervene if they notice any issues or challenges. They may encourage or recommend additional resources to help students succeed.
