Abstract

Academic advising plays an important role in the process of international student learning in a new culture. The article discusses the COVID-19 impacts on international student learning and the growing needs for academic support at the Dongbei University of Finance and Economics. By reviewing the literature on academic advising services and conducting an academic advising service needs analysis, the university builds an academic guidance system to support international student academic development during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey was conducted to explore international students’ satisfaction levels with the academic guidance system. In this article, we present the results of the satisfaction survey, its effects and actions and offer suggestions for further improvement of academic advising services.
