The Advising Center helps students plan their academic careers, from course selection to graduation requirements. The Center can also assist with decisions involving choosing or changing majors, and with strategies for remaining in good academic standing.

Advisor working with student



Advising is often equated with course registration twice a year, but there can be a lot more to this relationship than just a PIN. The advisor is one more person who can serve as a mentor and help you know your options in and out of the classroom.

The Advising Center works with faculty advisors across campus to provide support and guidance to all our students.
