How can the Academic Advisement Center help?

The Academic Advisement Center has up-to-date information on all academic programs at the University and can assist full and part-time Exploratory Studies (Undeclared) students in choosing a major area of study. In addition, the Academic Advisement Center staff acts as a liaison between the Counseling Center, Career Development and all other academic departments on campus.

 Until students have chosen a major area of study and have been assigned a faculty advisor, the staff at the Academic Advisement Center can assist students with course selection and registration.

 The professional staff advisors in the Academic Advisement Center are available to:

    • Assist you in selecting and registering for courses that meet both general education requirements and allow you to explore various fields of study that may help you decide upon a major area of study
    • Provide accurate and up-to-date information about programs and services as well as policies and procedures at the university
    • Assist students in assessing academic strengths and interests that will lead to the declaration of a major
    • Refer you to other academic departments and university services
