Academic Advising

Academic advisors are available throughout every student’s University career to help in many ways, including course registration, changing majors, reviewing academic progress, and developing double majors, minors and concentrations. Special academic counseling is provided to help students realize their personal aspirations for professional schools or international fellowships.
 Faculty and professional academic counselors are available through advising offices located in each of the three undergraduate colleges, and counselors from the Admissions Office are available during the application process to help with issues related to academic programs. During Summer Orientation, all students meet with an academic advisor to review and discuss their freshman schedule. 

Academic Advising Centers are open 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The staff at the Counseling Center is available to any student of the University community for personal and confidential consultation, as well as individual and group counseling.

Sometimes students have personal problems they may wish to discuss with a counselor. These may be related to the transition from high school to college or to decision-making regarding a variety of challenges that may occur in the life of a college student. Finding ways to talk about the stresses of life can often make the difference between an average college experience and an exceptional one.

All Counseling Center professional staff are licensed in psychology, counseling or social work, and are available to help students make the most out of their years at the University. Supervised doctoral candidates/interns may also be available to work with students.
