We encourage all students to meet with their academic advisor before registering for classes. Academic advising is a critical part of your academic success. Academic advisors are here to help you achieve your educational goals every step of the way.
Each academic program has unique ways of handling student advising. Undergraduate students in Pre-majors need to see an academic advisor in the Academic Success and Advising Center.
Academic advising is conducted on a department-by-department basis for undergraduate and graduate programs. Please see the appropriate links below for Undergrad and Graduate Advising.
Please visit: Undergraduate Advising Home
Graduate Advising is completed individually by each college/school and sometimes academic program. The link below will connect you on how to contact your department for academic advising.
Please visit Contact Graduate Advising Groups.
