4PAS stands for Four Phase Advising System. 4PAS provides multicultural students enrolled at The University of Akron with unique, personalized and academic and career-related advising. The program focuses on enhancing students’ potential for learning, while investing in their personal and professional growth.
Some of the benefits of 4PAS include
Students enroll in the program based on credit hours earned. First-year students are strongly encouraged to enroll in 4PAS as soon as they are accepted into the University. However, all multicultural students are welcome to enroll in 4PAS at any point of their academic career.
Students will move through the phases as they progress toward degree completion and accumulate credit hours. All phases of 4PAS will help embrace the academic progression and transition that each student will face throughout their time at The University of Akron.
4PAS is not designed and does not intend to substitute the services provided by the Academic Advisement Center in Summit College Advising or any other advisement services provided by degree granting colleges at The University of Akron. Students are still encouraged to meet with their Academic Adviser.
