Are you thinking about study abroad in the future? Perhaps a double major or minor? Want to create a four-year plan so you know you can graduate on time?

We strongly encourage all students to take the opportunity to be advised. Studies show that seeking out advising is one of the strongest predictors of student success.

It's a good idea to meet with an advisor early each semester. You can schedule an appointment to meet with an academic advisor who can answer all your questions below.

Other advising resources

Advising can also involve conversations about your broader academic goals and/or your career aspirations. These conversations can involve questions like “which minor should I choose?” or “what would be a good internship for me?”

All RSJ faculty are willing and able to serve as mentors and have these conversations with you. Simply seek them out and ask questions. You can read the bios of our faculty and get their contact information on our faculty and staff directory.
