Academic Advising helps students match their passion to their degree.


Some students come to college knowing exactly what degree they want to pursue. Others envision a specific career for themselves. Many, however, like to explore their options. That’s why we are here: to advise students, guide them through the first few semesters of college, and prepare them for their future studies.

Our Undergraduate Academic Advising team is available year-round and serves a diverse group of undergraduate students including those who are new, transferring, undeclared, international, non-degree seeking & pre-professional.  Declared majors and post-baccalaureate students are advised through their major department.
