Advisor Responsibilities

We are Here to Help

By learning about your goals, interests, and abilities, we assist in the development of your academic plan. We are also here to explain academic rules and policies. Our online scheduling system makes it easy to arrange a one-on-one appointment.

Keeping You on Track

We understand the curriculum and can provide useful information about courses while keeping you informed of important deadlines during our appointments.

Providing Assistance when Needed

If things do not go as planned and you experience academic difficulties, we can tell you about tutoring, study groups, and other resources available to you. We want you to succeed!

Other Resources

Each department has assigned a dedicated faculty member to serve as an advisor for students pursuing a major, minor, or concentration within that department. Faculty advisors augment the services provided by the professional staff in Academic Services. Faculty advisors are particularly helpful in situations involving credits from another university or a study abroad trip, course substitutions, or the waiver of prerequisites. These faculty members can also speak with you about course requirements within your major and can help when you are having difficulty with coursework or with your instructors.
