Advising and Student Transitions

Academic Advising

New students have the opportunity to work with professional advisors in Honors, the Business Advising Center, the Multicultural Academic Support Center and/or Advising and Student Transitions.  As students advance in their academic career, they will transition to a major or departmental advisor, normally a faculty member in their field of study.

  • Explain university academic policies and graduation requirements
  • Encourage you to be responsible for your own academic progress

  • Be courteous (schedule appointments early and cancel or reschedule if necessary)
  • Come prepared with questions and/or topics to  discuss
  • Take primary responsibility for course selection
