Key to every student’s success is their understanding of the requirements of the major and/or minor. Advisors provide the most help with your major. They know the faculty, department’s courses, and special opportunities offered by the department for undergraduates. They help ensure that your schedule meets the requirements of your degree plan. Additionally, they can assist you with the following:
- Selecting courses before you register each semester
- Changes of major
- Q-dropping a course
- Substituting courses transferred “by title” into your degree program
- Locating general information about career opportunities in your major
- Declaring your minor field of study
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.
