Academic Advising

Academic advising is a collaborative relationship between a student and an academic advisor. The intent of this collaboration is to assist the student in the development of meaningful educational goals that are consistent with personal interests, values, and abilities.

Academic Advising

Academic advising for majors, minors, and certificates in the College of Undergraduate Studies is in the Interdisciplinary Studies Advising Office. It is recommended that students schedule an advising appointment at least once a semester.

We care about your academic success and want you to make positive academic progress toward degree completion. In addition to semester-by-semester course schedule planning, we can help students navigate their career and personal goals, assist in changing majors, provide insight on High Impact Practices including undergraduate research and internships, and explain important policies and procedures including course withdrawals, medical withdrawals, and resolving incomplete grades. If you have a question, but don’t know who can help, start with your academic advisor.
