Advising Corner

We care about student success and each student in the department is assigned an academic advisor. The students are responsible, however, for familiarizing themselves with all the graduation requirements in effect at the time they were admitted to the university. Our objective is to help each student take the appropriate courses and accomplish his/her learning goals while graduating in time.
