Academic Advisors for CABNR Students The advisor / student relationship should be one of the most significant aspects of a students college experience.

Academic advisors provide essential guidance and will assist with course selection each semester. In addition, advisors offer valuable career information and often help students obtain useful practical experiences and may help establish professional contacts.

The department that offers the student's major has assigned a faculty advisor starting the student's first semester. If a student changes their major, they need to change to an advisor in the new major. If at any point a student decides that they need to change advisors, they should contact the assigned person for the major, and she/he will help make that change.

Please feel free to contact the CABNR Student Center if you have any questions or concerns about advising.

CABNR Undeclared Majors


Discontinued Majors


It is the student's responsibility to contact their advisor if they are having difficulty with courses or course load. If something is causing a student to struggle in class (sickness, personal problems, or a learning disability), the student should contact the advisor and/or CABNR Student Center for assistance. Faculty advisors and students are encouraged to review courses and requirements early and often to avoid unnecessary frustration when problems are identified close to the anticipated semester of graduation. If a student has transfer credits, it is especially important to verify the credits as early as possible.
