DUS advisers and some faculty advisers use Starfish to schedule appointments. If your adviser does not use Starfish, contact them to schedule an appointment.
The Shared Advising Model
Penn State Altoona uses a shared advising model. Types of advisers include:
- Professional DUS advisers, who advise mainly DUS students (exploring multiple academic programs/majors) and students in the transition from one major to another
- Faculty advisers, who advise students in pre-major or major status.
- College Resource Representatives, who serve as contacts to discuss majors in the college that they represent.
- Program Coordinators, who serve as resources to discuss majors offered at Penn State Altoona.
Students are assigned to advisers during New Student Orientation and are re-assigned when a major is changed.
