Academic Departments  

Students should be aware that the Office of Academic Advising exists to support - not replace - the work of faculty advisors.  As a result, it is in the student's best interest to cultivate a relationship with their faculty advisors, professors within the department, and, in some cases, professors in related departments, depending on the issue.  Each department is in the process of placing some basic advising materials online to facilitate the more basic, "transactional" elements of the advising relationship.  This should not be seen as a replacement for the face-to-face advising that takes place in the classroom, office, etc.


You faculty advisors are ready and able to help you, but you must initiate the relationship.  Email or call your faculty advisor to arrange a time to meet.
