Advising

Meet Our Team

Advising-Team.jpg#asset:1504Connect with your academic advisor who will help you navigate your college career.

All first-year students are assigned a professional academic advisor at the start of their academic career. Some students (honors, transfers, international students) will have multiple advisors to assist them. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have their major declared will be assigned to a faculty advisor in their field.

To find out who your academic advisor is, go to Self-Service (accessible on OneLogin) and select Student Planning. The name(s) of your advisor(s) will be located at the top of the My Progress page.

Navigate Your First Year

To make the best academic decisions for yourself, you need to be well informed. Your advisor can provide you with the information you need to make those choices.

We take a holistic approach to advising; our goal is to get to know each student so that we can discuss individualized plans that suit their needs and interests. First-year advisors meet with each of their advisees multiple times in the first two semesters. The support from advising includes, but is not limited to:

  • Providing more information about majors, minors and career options
  • Discussing an academic problem or concern
  • Developing strategies to improve academic performance
  • Better understanding the college's academic policies
  • Reviewing curriculum requirements
  • Exploring what courses to take each semester
