WHY IS MEETING WITH MY ADVISOR REQUIRED?

  • Your advisor has unique experience and knowledge in your academic program.
  • Your advisor will help you ensure you have met all requirements you need to graduate on time.
  • Your advisor will provide insight to interests such as internships, study abroad possibilities, research and more.
  • Your advisor may be a reference or character witness for applications to graduate school or employment after you finish school.
  • Your advisor will remove your advising hold if you have completed less than 60 credits.

** Advisors will be offering remote advising sessions via telephone and Zoom due to the current Covid-19 concerns. We are dedicated to ensuring you receive the guidance and instruction you need no matter its modality. **
