Don't be a Stranger
We recommend you meet with your advisor at least once per semester for course selection and advisement, but advisors are available year-round. Advisors can be consulted for a range of questions or issues related to academic progress, degree requirements, academic difficulties, university policies, or referrals to resources on campus and in the community.
Through the academic advising process, students will be able to:
- Make timely and informed decisions on major(s) and/or minor(s)
- Use and understand campus resources
- Make educated academic and personal decisions
- Create a personal path to degree completion
