Academic Advising

The Academic Advisor assists students and supplements faculty in the development of educational plans that are compatible with the student’s life goals. Although our resources are available to all students, the Academic Advisor is most used by first- and second-year students as they explore academic options, choose a major, and finalize a program of study. Once a program has been determined, students refer to departmental advisors for semester course selection and registration.
