The best time to see an adviser is before you have a problem - "Bee advised, don't get stung!"
The Academic Advising Center is busiest during registration periods and the first weeks of classes. Plan ahead to avoid these busy times. Faculty advisers (major advisers) are not always available during the summer months or between semesters. See the Academic Advising Center's hours and location.
Four Types of Advisers
Academic Advising Center (AAC) Advisers
- Understand graduation requirements
- Develop an academic plan
- Evaluate transfer credit
- Choose or change a major
- Plan your next semester's schedule
- Satisfy mathematics and writing competencies
- Remove probationary status to avoid disqualification
- File for graduation
Major advisers are available for each individual major. At you can find the faculty adviser for your specific major. Your faculty adviser will help you choose your upper division courses. He or she can also answer questions regarding career opportunities and graduate studies in your major field.
Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Advisers
Preprofessional advisers are available for students pursuing a preprofessional career (pre-medical, pre-law, etc.). Contact the adviser assigned to your preprofessional area.
