BHSU’s academic advising model includes both professional and faculty advisors.

Professional Advisors in Spearfish support first and second-year students as they transition to college, helping them connect with resources on campus, solidify their goals, develop a graduation plan and develop meaningful relationships.

Faculty Advisors support main campus students in their third year and beyond. The faculty advisor serves as a mentor and further prepares students for their career, helping them engage in research opportunities, pursue study abroad programs, secure internships, apply to graduate school, and more.

Rapid City students work with a Professional Advisor throughout their college experience, from day one all the way until graduation! Students are assigned a faculty advisor as their secondary advisor.

TRIO program students work with their TRIO professional advisor throughout their entire program. TRIO students are assigned a faculty advisor as their secondary advisor.
