Advising

Join us November 14-18 at Fall 2022 Advising Week to meet with an advisor and prepare for Spring registration. 

Students are encouraged to see advisors in their majors and/or an advisor in the Advising Resource Center (ARC) once a semester.

Majors within the College of Liberal & Creative Arts assign undergraduate major advisors in different ways (for the most up-to-date information on procedures for securing a major advisor, contact the department).

Graduate students typically get academic advising from the graduate coordinator in their program.

Occasionally, students wish to deviate from usual practices, and that deviation will require a petition. There are online resources for completing petitions and one can seek assistance from the Advising Resource Center when completing a petition.
