Each entering freshman will be assigned to a selected faculty member. The Registrar will assign an academic advisor to each student beyond the freshman year who has not selected a major. Academic advisors will assist in selecting courses, advise on academic progress and help develop vocational plans and objectives. The Deans of each School will assign a faculty member to be an academic advisor for students selecting an academic major in their School. An official list of students and advisors is maintained by the Registrar in MH 107. A request to change academic advisors must be filed in writing by the student. Change of Advisor forms may be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. A new academic advisor for the student must be approved by the Registrar and/or by the School Dean.
In all academic advising, the student has certain responsibilities. He/she must arrange meetings with the advisor several times a term, not just prior to registration. It is the responsibility of each student to know both the general requirements and those of the particular field of study and to meet them satisfactorily for graduation. Changing academic majors may require additional or repeat course work in order to complete a degree program. A Change of Academic Major form must be filed in writing with the Registrar.
