Why See an Advisor

Advisors help you with course scheduling, degree planning, managing graduation requirements, study abroad, internships, academic adjustments, and locating campus and community resources.

Academic advisors help you with semester-by-semester class enrollment planning.
Career advisors help you navigate major changes and life direction.

When to See an Advisor

You should see an advisor before you begin a degree program and check-in at least once a year. Try to schedule outside of peak enrollment times (immediately prior to and during registration periods).

Advisors can help when you have questions with your Advising and Academic Progress Report (AAR).

If your degree plans or circumstances change, an advisor can help you.
