Academic Advising

Academic Advising

Your first-year seminar instructor is looking forward to meeting you in the fall and talking with you about your academic choices and aspirations. Even before you arrive on campus, though, members of the faculty and staff are available to advise you on course selection, answer your questions about requirements and give you tips about areas of study that you may want to explore. Listed below are names and schedules of faculty members available to take your calls during the two weeks of summer registration. You can also find helpful information about academic requirements, advanced placement, and other areas you want to know about by going to Welcome Entering Students home page and clicking Academic Information.

Summer Faculty Advisors

Here is a list of faculty advisors who are ready and willing to help you with registration by phone.  Regardless of their discipline affiliation (with noted exceptions), they are available for any advising questions you might have.  It may help to read the materials on the web and the catalogue to have as much information as you can before you call in.  Beneath their contact, you will find the time schedule for their availability.
