Any degree-seeking student with fewer than 60 completed credit hours is required to contact an advisor before registering for classes. Remember that many times your advisor has connections that could lead to your future career. It is a good idea to work with your advisor for your entire college career.
BHSU - Rapid City - Katie Pavel is the general academic advisor at BHSU-Rapid City and will be listed as the secondary advisor for all students who are designated as BHSU-RC students. She can assist with registration and can answer general education questions. As students complete coursework within their required major, they should contact their primary advisor for information regarding their program, internship opportunities, and career development. Undeclared majors can meet with Katie; once they declare a major, they will have a faculty advisor assigned to them.
