How often should I see an advisor
It is recommended to meet with an advisor every semester to ensure that you are on the right pathway to graduation. Keep in mind that the busiest time to meet with an advisor is during the beginning and end of the semester, and is the most difficult time to schedule an appointment. We recommend that you meet with an advisor during the middle of the semester when our advisors are the most flexible.

Our faculty advisors only advise students on major requirements. For general education advising, please see a general education advisor at the following departments:
