Meet Your Advisor

Guidance & Support

Undergraduate advising serves all admitted undergraduate degree seeking and Running Start students. We view advising as a partnership between you, your professional advisor, and your faculty mentor and it goes beyond course selection. Whether you plan to enter the workforce or continue on to earn an advanced degree, your academic advisors and mentor will guide you toward that goal. This holistic approach ensures that you are engaged in your academic plan, connected to the campus community and resources, and are earning your degree as efficiently as possible.

If you are in the inquiry or application stage, you should work with the Office of Admissions. The Admissions Counselors will work with you to make sure all your current academic information is available and will connect you to advising and New Coug Orientation.
