Academic advising is essential to a productive academic experience. Advisors can identify and explain the most effective course sequence and help students select classes that best fit their individual curricula and career goals.

The advisor can also help you:

  • Design an appropriate course load
  • Answer questions and address problems
  • Link your program of study to relevant career opportunities
  • Identify other university personnel and services that can assist you
  • Provide assistance in the registration process

Each department assigns an advisor for each student. Students who have declared a major through the office of the Registrar should contact their department to schedule their first meeting with their advisor.
