Abstract

The current study aimed to explore the extent of students of the College of Education satisfaction with academic advising and their expectations from it. To achieve the goals of the study, a dual scale to assess academic advising satisfaction and expectations have been developed. The scale and a questionnaire to collect demographic data were administered to 501 students enrolled at the Faculty of Education during the academic year 2003/2004.
To analyze the collected data, several statistical approaches were utilized, including Descriptive Statistics, T Test, One Way ANOVA, and Correlation Coefficient.
The results showed that the students were not fully satisfied with the academic advising services, and that the time of meetings with advisors correlates positively with the students’ extent of satisfaction.
The results also showed that the students who received academic advising from advisors working within the College of Education were more satisfied than their counterparts who received academic advising from advisors working outside the College.
The results demonstrated that the students usually prefer to deal with advisors with knowledge of study plans, as well as university's rules and regulations. Moreover, the study revealed that the students in general were more satisfied with how the advisors deal with them than with the advisors’ knowledge.
Finally, the study explored that the students who received academic advising from Omani advisors were more satisfied than those who received academic advising from expatriate advisors.
