The student, now living in another city, thought he could substitute other courses for the history requirement and said his academic adviser did not tell him otherwise.
Mewborn couldn't say if more students are complaining that an adviser fouled up their academic progress.
But overlooking a graduation requirement can cost a student, both financially and in extra time to complete a degree, she said.
"We've seen cases where students come in and say, 'I've accepted a job or accepted an internship,' " she said.Sometimes, students have been accepted to medical or law school - contingent on the completion of their undergraduate degree, she said.

Ann Crowther, associate vice president for instruction, agreed with Mewborn that advising is becoming more complex.
