*A part of this study was presented at European Conference on Educational Research (ECER), September 6-10, 2015, Budapest, Hungary.
The current study investigated the views of both students and academic advisors regarding the academic advising in a state university in Ankara. The study utilized survey and correlational research design methods. The data were collected from 840 undergraduate students and 130 advisors through an online survey, and were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings indicated that the advisors and their students met once or twice during an academic semester, mostly to talk about issues related to course registration and approval. Moreover, the academic advisors had significantly more positive opinions towards academic advising than did the students. Lastly, the frequency of face-to-face appointments, the number of advising activities, and advisor characteristics were found to predict overall student satisfaction regarding academic advising.
