Academic Advising

What is academic advising?

It is a process that helps you plan your courses and activities, and to achieve your academic goals. Departmental academic advisors are full-time faculty members who are familiar with our degree programs and curricula, and who will help you plan and schedule your courses to meet degree requirements. Each individual student is assigned a departmental faculty advisor.
