Academic Advising

Academic advisors in the Broad College are coordinators of your undergraduate experience. They provide critical information about academic programs and degree requirements, study abroad and leadership development, major choices and career options, policies and procedures, and campus resources. Advisors facilitate freshman seminars, advise student organizations, administer the College/Major admission process, coordinate special programs and events, serve as a reference if they know you well, certify your graduation, and work with university administrators on your behalf. We look forward to serving you and getting to know you during your college career!
