Undergraduate Advising

The philosophy of the MU Sinclair School of Nursing places emphasis on the individual student’s development as a person as well as a nurse. Quality academic advising is critical to success at Mizzou. Students are encouraged to seek out their academic advisor as a primary resource person.

The academic advisor helps the pre-nursing student with planning course schedules, providing information concerning MU and MU Sinclair School of Nursing policies, and referring students to resources essential for success.

Each student is responsible for becoming familiar with degree requirements, graduation requirements, and all other aspects regarding academic progress. Each student is assigned an advisor who will assist the student in planning schedules and will give advice which assists the student toward timely graduation. However, the ultimate responsibility for understanding and completing degree and graduation requirements lies with the student, not the advisor.

Scheduling Appointments/Visits

Current MU students may schedule an academic advising appointment with an adviser by using MU Connect.
