Advising

Faculty are required to advise and counsel undergraduate and graduate students on academic matters.  General advising at the undergraduate level is coordinated by the Director of the Vacca Office of Student Services who serves as the School representative for College and University functions related to undergraduate programs and activities.  Individual faculty members are responsible for providing academic counseling to undergraduate students assigned to them and to other undergraduate students who seek such advice, as needed.  Student advising at the graduate level is conducted by the student's "major professor" and the student’s dissertation committee members.
