An academic advisor is your primary point of contact and will be there to

  • Help you find the most efficient path to completing your degree
  • Determine which course or courses you should take next
  • Advise you on alternative ways of earning credit that could save you time and money
  • Identify services and resources to help you stay (or get back) on track

Advisors will partner with staff members from the following departments, either working with them on your behalf or having you contact them directly. In either case, the advisor is your advocate.

Advisors are available in person or by e-mail or phone
