Advising

See below information for RPM, RT, and HTM advising information.

RPM Advising

When students declare RPM as their major program, or during Orientation, they are assigned advisors.

The major advisor is a student's primary point of contact within RPTA and can answer questions about requirements, transfer course substitutions, major elective choices, when to petition for graduation, etc.

It is possible, within the RPM major, to select major elective coursework which will also satisfy requirements for an RPTA Academic Certificate. Refer to the Certificate page or speak with your advisor about certificates.

If an advisor does not know the answer to a question, they will typically know where to direct the student next. Major advisors are generally not as knowledgeable about University-wide issues, such as Financial Aid, and students cannot expect a single advisor to know the answer to every question!

RT Advising

The major advisor is a student's primary point of contact within RPTA and can answer questions about requirements, transfer course substitutions, major elective choices, when to petition for graduation, etc. If an advisor doesn't know the answer to a question, they will typically know where to direct the student next.
