Advising Resources

The College of Visual and Performing Arts is now a part of the Highlander Success Center (HSC). The HSC is located in Young Hall; and is open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  

At Radford University, academic advisors in the Highlander Success Center work together to provide comprehensive services to all students with fewer than 56 credit hours, undeclared students, first-year transfer students, and students who have been readmitted and are initially in poor academic standing.  The HSC academic advisor is listed as the student’s primary advisor in Starfish.  

Faculty Advisors

Each new student will be assigned a department faculty advisor at the beginning of their first semester. Students can look up their faculty advisor in their Starfish network and should feel free to email or stop by during their faculty advisor’s office hours. This advisor can be changed, with permission of the new advisor, after completion of the first semester. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the first advisor and department chair of any changes.

All students should see their academic advisor by the sixth week of each semester to discuss classes for the following semester. It is the responsibility of the student to be sure all requirements for graduation are met. Any questions regarding policies should be referred to the “Academic Policy” section of the Undergraduate Catalog.
