Advising

Student Division Advisors and the Dean's Office

Peer advisors are available in our virtual Dean’s Office to answer quick questions, make referrals, raise maximum hours, and connect students to Student Division advisors to discuss withdrawing, q-dropping courses, pass/fail changes, graduation, VA certification, and other issues during virtual walk-in advising hours Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. beginning Wednesday, August 26.

Student Division advisors also see students who are undeclared, on scholastic probation, on scholastic dismissal, seeking an official degree check, seeking an exception to degree requirements, in an emergency situation. Students should make appointments for official degree checks, registration advising, success advising, and major exploration.

Please note appointments are not available during the first four class days and other high traffic times when all Student Division advisors advise on a drop-in basis. During these times please connect with a peer advisor via our virtual Dean’s Office to determine the appropriate next steps.


Departmental Advisors

Departmental advisors see students in their majors, students who are exploring the major, and students who have questions about courses taught in the department. Departmental advisors work with students to create graduation plans; discuss degree requirements and classes; explore honors options, scholarships, and study abroad. Advisors help students who are in scholastic difficulty; initiate petitions regarding degree requirements, act as liaisons between students and faculty, and between departments and the Dean's official as well as make referrals to other student services on campus.
