Academic Advising

The staff members in Academic Services are invaluable educational advocates and your go-to source for student information, from orientation to commencement. They offer the following services:

  • Academic advising for undergraduate, graduate and transfer students
  • Assistance with petitions, such as a change of major, transfer course equivalence or an independent study
  • Assistance with scholarships
  • Study abroad guidance and referrals
  • Assistance with graduation logistics
  • Assistance coordinating paperwork for readmission from suspension

Students are asked to make appointments with the appropriate Academic Services staff member if they need assistance. Appointments are typically scheduled from 9 – 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday
