Student Advisors

  • Student advisors assist fellow students in planning their programs of study, providing advice on program requirements, general information, and help with course registration. They also act as liaisons between students and faculty and participate in orientation activities for new students. Students are expected to consult their faculty and student advisors at least once each semester.


    Students register online in April for the fall semester and in November for the spring semester. For more information about registering for classes, see the University Registrar's registration page.
