athletic academic advising
the mission of academic athletic advising is to assist all student athletes in realizing their academic potential by providing academic support and by continuously monitoring their academic athletic eligibility and progress toward degree, all the while instilling in student athletes the tools to become academically competent and autonomous as they pursue their degrees and commit to life-long learning.
who we are:
our office is comprised of three full-time staff members. each one is dedicated to the academic welfare of our student-athletes. as our mission states, we want to see our student-athletes as successful in life as they are on the field. that success is determined, for the most part, by what takes place within the classroom. between our three staff members, we have years of experience with the university of central arkansas as either students, staff, or alumni. that experience is all brought to bear to help assist our students with their academic goals.
what we do:
with all of our years of experience with uca, we are able to deliver a multitude of resources and services to our students and their coaches. the list below will give you a good idea of some of the main things that we do.
