Advisor Resources

Thank you, advisors, for your service to students! Bethel students say they most appreciate having more meaningful conversations with their advisors. The resources below are designed help you navigate Bethel’s systems to open up more space for those conversations. You can also use the student-facing portions of our website to help advisees explore majors, read a transcript/degree evaluation, and more.

Questions? Contact the Advising Specialist at advising-center@bethel.edu or x6437. You can also contact the Director of CAS Advising, Patrice Conrath, at conrath@bethel.edu or x6348.

Advising Purpose Statement
