The Tiger Advisor service is now open in newly renovated quarters located on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library adjacent to the dark wood panelled walls of the Reference Department offices.

Tiger Advisor is open Monday - Thursday from 3 - 8 p.m. to assist students with locating resources to answer general advising questions and inquiries related to their academic progress.  No appointment is necessary for students to stop by for assistance.  Tiger Advisor provides guidance on university policies and procedures, and provides training and assistance in negotiation the Tigeri registration system, the DegreeWorks online degree audit system, the Auburn Bulletin, and the Policy eHandbook.

Tiger Advisor does not replace a student's academic advisor, but the service helps students learn how to find the information they need through existing online resources or directs students to the proper campus office that can address their concern or need.

For more information, visit the Tiger Advisor web site.
