Academic Advising for Undergraduates

College of Arts & Sciences Advising

Students will be guided by the College (Arts & Sciences) in their first year.  Department advisors are always available, and we encourage students to meet the department advisors before they register for upcoming semesters.

The college's professional advisors are the ideal resource for students who want to discuss transfer credit, AP credit, placement into Math or other courses, or graduation requirements. The Office of Undergraduate Advising and Student Services is located in 105 Bowman Hall and they can be reached by email at

Department of Computer Science Advising

The department's faculty advisors are the ideal resource for students who want to discuss computer science in general, the requirements for the major, the optional concentrations, or specific courses. They can also discuss your course plan for the next semester or two, and help you select electives to meet your interests.

Prospective students outside the U.S. have special concerns, so we have a separate set of meeting times for international students.
