The goal of this study was to analyze current undergraduate students' perceptions of academic advising practices within the Health and Exercise Science Department (HES) at Rowan University. The department provides a rigorous and enlightening intellectual environment for the professional development, achievement and distinction of leaders in Education, Athletic Training, Public Health and Health Promotion and Fitness Management. Although there has been much research on student perceptions of academic advising, there has not been any done specific to Health and Exercise Science majors at Rowan University. Rowan University is currently undergoing massive changes during the COVID-19 crisis. With the transition to remote learning, there is an opportunity to make changes, modifications, and improvements to the current department-wide policies and procedures, including those related to academic advising practices. The results of this study will be shared with Rowan University's Department of Health and Exercise Science to provide insight into the undergraduate students' perceptions regarding academic advising.
