The National Academic Advising Association has individuals who have
developed specific programs that would probably meet your need.  You can ask
for assistance there at .  I found the information to be
very helpful at my former college where we did not have any kind of formal
advising system.

Good luck!  It's a very good way to retain students and coupled with
learning assistance, your retention rate should go right up!

Our college president is asking our learning assistance center to take on
the role of student advising and am curious to know what models exist out
there.  I would appreciate any information you could give me.  Many thanks.
