Advising System

Rice's small size and residential college system allow for the utilization of a unique advising system, referred to as a "split-supplemental model." Rice's advising system splits advising between new students and those who have declared major. Faculty advising is supplemented with a strong support network of trained professional staff and peer student advisors. The advising system offers individual attention to each student by faculty advisors with unique educational perspectives and experiences, while also affording constant access to professional staff members and student advisors.
