Academic Advising

Students are assigned a faculty member from their major department to serve as their advisor. Undeclared students have faculty/academic advisors assigned as well. Each student meets with his/her academic advisor during the regularly scheduled advising period each semester to review academic progress and select courses for the coming semester. Faculty advisors must approve all courses taken off campus, using appropriate forms available in the Office of the Registrar.  All advisors have office hours, so the student should contact the advisor whenever information or an opinion on an academic matter is needed. Refer to the Academic Advising Handbook online ( or the Academic Success Center for further information.
