Academic Advising

Did you know that students who work with an advisor increase their chances for success in completing an academic degree? Advisors can assist you with academic planning, and help you navigate a successful pathway to graduation! Advisors are available by appointment, email, or telephone. Special walk-in hours are held at the beginning of each semester. Remember, all undergraduate students are required to meet with an advisor once per semester!
