Advising Center

Hours and Scheduling

Advising for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences is a multi-part process. Freshmen (0-29 credits) are advised in the First Year Advising Center. Students then transition to their home general education advising office during their sophomore year. Students with a CLASS major will also have a faculty advisor located in the department which houses the declared major. Students should meet regularly with their advisors to ensure timely progression toward graduation. Students in the Honors/Scholars, Athletics and TRiO programs will be advised in those program offices.
