Student Handbook


Student Advising Center

The Student Advising Center (SAC) is the “go to” location for all Emporia State University freshmen and undeclared, “exploratory” students as they navigate higher education and Emporia State.  SAC advisors guide students through self, major, and career exploration and assist students in course selection appropriate for their talents and goals. 

The Advising Center helps students develop educational goals in the context of their ever-developing life plans. Advisors provide freshmen, undecided, and transitional students the information and encouragement they need to explore possible majors and chart paths through college to careers.  SAC assists Emporia State students to develop and complete a realistic educational plan that will empower them to reach their full potential.

When students have chosen a major and are successfully progressing towards that major, they are then assigned an upper-division faculty advisor within the appropriate academic department. Students should go to the Student Advising Center, 106 Plumb Hall, or call 620-341-5421 with any questions or concerns.
