Student Guide to Advising

As a student, you have to make lots of choices that directly affect your academic career path.

Our goal is to provide you with the right information, when needed, so that you can reach your own academic goals leading to graduation.

Carefully plan and frequently review requirements. This will help ensure that you will have no problems at graduation.

Advising should be a continuing process not limited to approval of courses.

  • You may contact your adviser or the Academic Advising & Support Office as often as you wish.
  • You are encouraged to take the initiative in seeking their assistance at any time you have questions or concerns. Informal student-adviser contact can enhance the quality of the undergraduate experience.
  • Course offerings and curriculum requirements sometimes change. Discussions regarding changes are very important for students to stay on track for their degree.
  • Also, regular contact with your adviser will help provide a good source for recommendations later in a student's career.
