About General Advising
Through collaboration and academic guidance, the Academic Advising Center fosters a developmental process of assisting undergraduate students in clarifying and achieving their personal, professional, and educational goals.
All freshmen must be advised in both fall and spring semesters.
- Advising can take place in 1-to-1 or group sessions.
- The link to schedule your appointment will go out via e-mail during the first two weeks of instruction.
- The following resources are completed with an Academic Advisor.
Advisors focus on maximizing the courses you need to take by helping you identify the most beneficial general education requirements available for you.
Fall: If you are enrolled in a First Year Seminar, you must complete your first-year advising with your Peer Mentor.
Spring: If you are in at least one of these programs/groups, then you DO NOT need to complete First Year Advising through the Academic Advising Center
