Academic Advising

Register for the right courses, build your schedule and review your academic plan.

We want to make sure you are following the right degree program and taking the right courses to achieve your goals. And, if you are undecided, we want to talk with you about your interests and future plans. For these reasons, we provide a variety of academic advising options.
