Academic advising is the key to making progress in a degree program and graduating on time. It is very important for students to have regular contact with their academic advisors.

In addition to focusing on University Core Curriculum and major requirements, advisement can also be the beginning of an important professional mentoring relationship, assisting students in learning more about their chosen career field.

Advisors and Hours

It is recommended that you set up an appointment with your advisor immediately. An advisor will help you get started and stay on track. All incoming freshmen and sophomores should meet with the undergraduate advisor for initial advisement.
