Academic advisors assist students in developing an education plan which takes into account the student’s career goals and major. Students are expected to meet with their advisor each term and whenever they have questions. Students play an important role in forming a productive relationship with their academic advisor and are expected to schedule appointments ahead of time and come prepared to the appointment. Newly admitted students are assigned a specific advisor, based on their declared major. Students who have not yet decided on a specific major are assigned an advisor for career exploration​ and career development and life planning. Students with an assigned advisor will find the name of their advisor in their WebRunner account, once the first term begins. Students who need help identifying their advisor may inquire at the Advising Center, Takena Hall.
