Advising & Student Services
Helping our students succeed is at the core of everything we do in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences. Meeting regularly with your advisor will help you find an academic plan that interests you, challenges you, and ultimately, ensures your success.
Academic Advising is a relationship in which the student and advisor are partners in planning academic, personal and career goals. It fosters intellectual and personal development that leads to academic success and self-directed life-long learning. Advisors in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences are excited to meet with you and help you create a plan for success that will keep you interested, engaged and headed in the right direction to achieve your goals. We have an open-door policy and are available by email, phone or walk-in appointments. Please stop by anytime you need a question answered or some assistance on your path to graduation and beyond.
Who Is My Advisor?
If you are an undergraduate student who has declared a major in one of our departments, you will be assigned a professional advisor, a faculty member, or a peer mentor from your department as your advisor. If you have questions about who your advisor is, please use your Degree Audit or see the “Find Your Advisor” tab below. If you are on campus, you can also stop by and we will be happy to walk you through your first look at your degree audit and help you get in touch with your advisor.
Advising and Registration Dates
All students in the college meet with an advisor before registering for classes each term.
