Academic Advising

A student is assigned a faculty member from his or her major department to serve as advisor in the selection of courses, changes in schedule, and all other academic matters. Undeclared students have faculty/academic advisors assigned as well. The student meets with the academic advisor during the regularly scheduled advising period each semester to review academic progress and select courses for the coming semester. During the registration period the advisor signs the registration form which the student presents in order to enroll in courses. All advisors have office hours so the student should contact the advisor whenever information or an opinion on an academic matter is needed. Refer to the Academic Advising Handbook online ( or the Academic Success Center for further information.

Faculty advisors must approve all courses taken off-campus using appropriate forms available in the Office of the Registrar.
