Advising Resources

All new undergraduate students must attend New Student Orientation, where the freshman advisor will explain the procedure for registration and the student will register for classes.

Transfer students also will have to see the freshman advisor for an initial evaluation of their transcripts and may be directed to a faculty advisor.

New graduate students will be assigned a faculty advisor based on research or study interests indicated in the applicant’s statement of purpose.

Our advisors strive to help students:

  • clarify their life and career goals,
  • assess individual academic abilities,
  • develop suitable educational plans,
  • select appropriate courses and complementary educational experiences,
  • interpret institutional requirements,
  • enhance their awareness of available educational resources (such as internship opportunities, honors, and tutoring programs),
  • evaluate their progress toward established goals,
  • assist them in completing degree requirements in a timely manner,
  • seek out and use support services in the institution and the community.
