Communication between the advisor and advisee is the key to the success of advisorship. Advisees need to feel that their Advisor knows who they are, what courses they are taking, their past record, what extracurricular activities they participate in etc. Faculty should know how to make use of advisee electronic records (see the section on Koç University Student Information System, KUSIS). Faculty should check these records and monitor the performances of their advisees regularly. Advisors should contact advisees at least twice a semester (at the start and half way through). Advisors should also encourage students to keep in touch throughout the semester.
