Academic Advising

Key to every student’s success is their understanding of the requirements of the major and/or minor. Our Undergraduate Advising Office provides a welcoming environment, where our friendly and knowledgeable staff assists students with information about degree requirements, courses, scholarships, degree planner and study abroad opportunities, among other things. Majors are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor every semester prior to pre-registration to ensure that their requirements are being met and they are on track for graduation.
