Abstract: When students develop partnerships with their advisors, they are able to move beyond scheduling and degree audits to engage in thinking about post-graduation and life planning. Advisors are typically available to provide support and guidance for students’ academic goals, but they can also assist students with personal and professional aspirations. Unfortunately, many students do not take advantage of this aspect of academic advising and treat advising as a once-a- semester task required for class registration. Thus they are graduating from college without plans for attaining their long-term goals. This study surveyed University of Hawai‘i at M!noa undergraduate students to see if UHM undergraduate students who engage in life planning discussions with an academic advisor will be more satisfied with the advising process than those who receive only academic advising for registration and career preparation. Results demonstrate students who engaged in life planning discussions with an academic advisor were more satisfied with their advising experiences than students who did not engage in life planning discussions. These results support developmental, holistic advising that focuses on assisting and supporting students in a multidimensional manner to reach beyond their graduation requirements.
