Academic and Career Advising Center
A regular stop from your first day on campus to your last, advisors work with students in all majors from NSE to graduation, and career coaches help you explore majors/minors, gain experience, and develop a plan for life after graduation. The center is also the front door to the college for undergraduate students and the place to start when you have a question about policies, procedures, and resources.
See the center to:
- choose or change your major, minor and degree program
- understand degree requirements and academic policies
- identify resources for greater academic success
- complete paperwork for substitutions, waivers, petitions, degree plans and more
- meet deadlines for adding, dropping and changing courses or grade options
- assess progress toward graduation
Major and minor advisors
Every major and minor in the college has an expert. Most CAS students have more than one major, so getting to know the advisor in each is critical.
- In larger departments, that person is also the primary, assigned advisor to students.
- In smaller departments, that person is a faculty member who works with the primary assigned advisor in the Advising Center.
What to expect from advising
The best results come from a collaborative relationship between you and your advisor. Accountability, knowledge, critical thinking, and communication are needed on both sides.
Strengthen your academic skills
The academic transition from high school to college can be challenging, and even the most dedicated student may feel uncomfortable, overwhelmed, and doubtful of their ability to succeed. In most cases,getting a little extra help, or learning a new approach to time management or studying makes all the difference.
