Undergraduate Advising

Advisors help you choose the coursework that fulfills the departmental requirements -- as well as your own personal learning goals. They are also an excellent resource for finding answers to any questions that you might have. And when it comes time to convert your units into a degree, they are the ones who will sign the proper forms.

Majors in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts (LCA) should consult with two advisers each semester: (1) an adviser in the major and (2) a general education and university requirements adviser in the ARC (Advising Resource Center for LCA). Students who are completing a minor or an additional major should see an adviser in those programs as well.

Undergraduate Advising

Undergraduate students choose their own advisors within their area of concentration. To see an advisor, simply go to their office hours or email them to make an appointment.
