Plan your educational and career path.
Academic advisors provide expert advice to students on courses and degree plans. We have an excellent reputation for advisement and mentoring by faculty.
First and second-year students are advised by faculty who focus on aiding them in the transition to college. These two years allow students to get to know other faculty members within the department and then choose who will advise them during their junior and senior years.

    • It is helpful to enroll first in classes that constrain your schedule, are a priority, or have only a few seats left. Base the rest of your schedule around these courses.
