Advising Appointments

Talk to your advisor

Your academic advisor is here to support you on your academic journey. You should plan to meet with them at least once each semester to review your academic plan and identify appropriate course options for the next semester. Your advisor will guide you through your academic experience and help you:

  • Identify your academic and career goals
  • Develop an academic plan to build the skills and knowledge necessary to reach your goals
  • Select and enroll in classes appropriate for your plan
  • Understand academic policies and procedures
  • Learn to use the academic tools available to you, such as the College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin, the degree map for your major, and your Academic Advisement Report
  • Connect with academic support services
  • Integrate co-curricular opportunities such as internships, study abroad and student organizations
