First-Year Advising

All incoming students will receive an email containing an Advising Questionnaire in early June. The Advising Hub will use this information to place students with a pre-major faculty advisors by the end of July. Students can expect to hear from their assigned faculty advisor in early August regarding the opportunity to meet during New Student Orientation. 

Students should work closely with their advisor to ensure that academic and personal goals are being met, and to discuss all-college and intended major requirements. Students must meet with their advisor during Block 2 in order to obtain a pre-registration passcode to register for Blocks 3 and 4. 

All students have the option to switch faculty advisors at any time by stopping by the Advising Hub. Our Advising and Fellowship Coordinator will work closely with students to ensure that they are working with an advisor whose research and areas of academic interests closely align with their own. Once a student declares a major (by the end of their Sophomore year or earlier), they will be assigned to a major advisor, who may or may not be your first assigned faculty advisor. 

Regardless of advisor assignment, students are encouraged to work with multiple departments, faculty, and advisors in order to ensure a holistic academic and professional development experience.
