2What is E-Advisor?E-Advisor is a supplemental feature of the Colleague system from Datatel.E-Advisor works with the existing Degree Audit and related functions and will enhance the advisement process between Advisors and Students.Through this technology greater communication will occur; the Advisor can guide the student toward completion of their academic goals for a single term, multiple terms, or a complete program of study.E-Advisor will not replace students meeting with an MTC Advisor yet will provide the essential capability to document discussions for future reference.
3E-advisor features:There will be a comments section; advisors will have access to secure online notesStudents will have a notes section where the can create notesEasy access between the advisor & the studentThe “WIZ-Course Wizard Planning” is tied directly to the Program Evaluation function already in use by the collegeBoth students & advisors can add courses to the Student’s Plan but the Advisor can delete courses that are not part of the student’s programStudents may not register for courses that have not been approved by their advisor
