The responsibility of an academic advisor is to promote students’ sense of responsibility, commitment to the pursuit of intellectual foundations, disciplinary competence, academic success and career advancement awareness. A major intent of academic advising is to challenge and encourage students to participate in, and to thrive in MMU campus and Cyberjaya communities and beyond.2. Good academic advising can help students bridge the gaps between personal, academic and career requirements. Supported by good advising, students will clarify, plan, implement and monitor a programme of study consistent with their values, goals, interests, and abilities. This will lead to success and satisfaction in their personal, academic and career lives.Advising Policy:
