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.

Advising Overview

Undergraduate Advising

Majors in the College of Liberal & Creative Arts (LCA) should consult with two advisors each semester:

  1. an advisor in the major and
  2. a general education and university requirements adviser in the Advising Resource Center (ARC) for LCA

Students who are completing a minor or an additional major should see an advisor in those programs as well.
