Students are assigned an academic advisor, ordinarily within the department in which a student is majoring. Advisors will also be assigned to students who are undecided about a major. The academic advisor is the student's liaison with other university offices. Advisors should be consulted often for guidance and advice. In addition to offering academic guidance, advisors can provide information on where to obtain and how to complete necessary forms pertaining to academics. Advisors must approve student schedules and all other academic paperwork. Students meet with advisors individually for pre-registration consultation each semester.
