Although each student has ultimate responsibility for becoming familiar with and meeting graduation requirements, the College of Arts and Sciences believes that conscientious and well-informed advising on an individual basis is an important part of the academic program. Each student is assigned an advisor from the faculty or administration whose responsibility it is to help plan and supervise the student’s academic program and to be available on other matters. An academic advisor approves the student’s schedule of courses at registration and should be consulted with regard to any subsequent changes.
Academic advisors work closely with and frequently refer advisees to a number of offices for advice and assistance. Among these offices are those for Academic Advising, the Dean of the College, the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Affairs, the Dean of Students, the University Wellness Center, and the University Registrar.
