Abstract

Advising is a vital component of student academic success in college. This paper describes the design and creation of an electronic Student Academic Advising System (SAAS) to support conventional advising procedures. Use of this SAAS is intended to better guide students through educational process via the use of technology applications.

In addition to evaluating the impact of academic e-advising on the student experience in higher education, this study also explores the two different types of advising (e-advising and traditional/in-person academic advising). The satisfaction levels of the students with both types of advising were also assessed.

The findings offer some awareness into how effective academic e-advising might be used as an alternative/support to traditional, face-to-face advising methods.
