Undergraduate Advising

Academic advising is required of all undergraduate degree majors prior to being cleared to register for classes. The goal of an academic advising session is for students and their advisor to work together to develop an academic plan that helps students reach their academic goals. Academic advisors are here to help you with your academic planning, but remember that this is your academic career.
