Academic Advisement

Students enrolled in all undergraduate schools and colleges are assigned faculty or staff advisors to assist them in planning and following a sound program of study. Students are encouraged to contact their advisor on any matters related to their educational programs. The role of the academic advisor goes beyond providing assistance to students in selecting and scheduling classes. The scope of the advisor’s responsibility typically includes any areas that affect or are related to academic success, such as goal-setting, career planning, academic issues, personal concerns, financial support, and general guidance to facilitate personal growth. Students who have not selected a major should contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies for a consultation.
