A designated advisor is a staff or faculty member who will have access to a view student's SIS information. This person will not be able to release advising holds but will have access to a student's academic and demographic data.
A designated advisor can be assigned by a student or by a SIS administrator in order to supplement student support. Once logged into SIS, a student can click the Advisors tile on the Student Homepage. From there, choose Designated Advisors from the menu on the left.
For more detailed instructions, see our Designated Advisor guide.
Please contact the student directly to have the access changed. If you are unable to have the student remove the access, contact the appropriate school (i.e. Undergraduate Advising Support, School of Graduate Studies, etc.) for the student.
