A. The professional advisors are follows:

Please contact one of these advisors for further information.


Q. When should I be advised?

A. Students should be advised no later than the end of October for spring and summer classes, no later than the end of March for Fall classes. However, students can be advisied at other times as well. Pre Law and Pre Medical Professions advisors see students anytime and will refer students to their major advisor for semester-to-semester advising and hold lifting.


Q. How do I make an advising appointment?

A. You may schedule an advising appointment through iAdvise.  


Students in Exploratory are advised in individual advising sessions by one of the academic advising specialists and appointments typically last at least one hour. Due to the depth of the advising session, it is necessary that all students meet in person for advisement during each enrollment period. The Exploratory major does not permit self-advising.


Students should be familiar with the degree requirements checksheet for their major. Degree Navigator is another helpful tool that students and advisors use to view academic requirements and progress.
