    Professional advisors have more advising experience and can help with more intense student populations. The professional advisors have dedicated their lives and career to the profession of higher education and helping students succeed. Professional advisors are in the know with Kennesaw State’s rules, regulations, and policy to keep a student on track to graduation.

    Faculty advisors are faculty who teach in the field and have an extensive background in the industry for which they are teaching. Faculty advisors will generally see juniors and seniors to develop an academic plan for upper division coursework. Faculty advisors enable a student to develop a professional portfolio and empower the student with career opportunities. Faculty advisors will help match the student’s personal goals with career aspirations and steps on making both a reality.
