Academic advisors

All new students (freshmen, transfer students and newly declared majors), continuing freshmen, sophomores, and probation students in the College of Science and the Mackay School of Earth Sciences & Engineering meet with one of the Academic Advisors listed below.

Your advisor is assigned to you based on your major and, in some cases the first letter of your last name.

All psychology majors, freshman through seniors, schedule an appointment with a psychology faculty advisor:

Juniors and Seniors in good academic standing should meet with their faculty advisor, not an academic advisor.
