All freshmen majoring in areas offered within the College of Humanities and Sciences are advised through the University College. Please refer to the “University College” section of this bulletin for further information on the first-year advising program. After attaining sophomore standing, students within the college receive academic advising from within the department or school of their majors. The advising system for each department and school varies somewhat; however, each student is assigned an adviser according to their program of study. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the educational and career-planning assistance provided by their assigned faculty advisers. Ultimately, students are responsible for understanding all university and college requirements needed to earn a degree and for seeking out academic advising on a regular basis. The academic advisers provide assistance with interpreting policies, requirements and regulations, maximizing academic success and enriching the overall undergraduate educational experience.
