Academic Advising is a program extensively used in educational systems to provide guidance and advice to students. It has a significant influence on education systems as part of the teaching and learning processes. Academic Advising is highly valued and hence commonly utilized in higher education institutions worldwide as a form of student support.

National and international agencies responsible for accrediting higher-education institutions have formed standards to ensure that students have adequate support to alleviate stress, solve problems, and address weaknesses that may negatively reflect their academic performance.

When advising interactions are rooted in students’ own experiences rather than in generic skill development exercises, students can use the resulting personally constructed strategies in new academic situations.
