Student Success Advising
Academic advisors help students better understand their goals, their academic plans, and guide students as they make important decisions about their future.
You have access to a Student Success Advisor who can provide academic advice for undergraduate students related to navigating course registration and transfer credits, understanding university regulations, and academic support programs. The Student Success Advisors can also help you build your academic confidence to maintain or regain good academic standing through the Academic Advantage program.
You can also contact your Faculty Advisor, in your area of study, who can provide academic advice for undergraduate and graduate students related to program updates, program-specific requests, appeal support, degree completion, and exploring your future career or graduate study options.
