Academic Advising

Our Advisors Are Invested in Your Success

The College of Human Sciences & Education offers 8 undergraduate degree programs, plus minors and concentrations in additional areas. The Office of Student Services (OSS) team members are experts in each degree’s curriculum options and requirements. Working together, we will design an academic plan that meets your needs.

Our open-door policy means any student interested in one of our majors can schedule an advising appointment—no need to wait until you are officially enrolled in the college.

Getting to know you — By learning about your goals, interests, and abilities, we assist in developing your academic plan. We are also here to explain academic rules and policies.

Keeping you on track — We understand the curriculum and can provide helpful details about courses while informing you of essential deadlines during appointments.

Assisting when needed — If things do not go as planned and you experience academic difficulties, we can connect you with tutoring, study groups, and other resources.

Following your lead — Make the most of our services by taking an active role in the process. Online scheduling through Navigate makes it easy to book an appointment. For best results, get help early and often.

Get Help Early and Often

You must take an active role in the academic counseling process. Share your plans and passions, and your counselor will provide advice to help you achieve your goals. The counselor’s role is not decision-maker; that’s your job. Instead, they are here to ensure you have the information and guidance necessary to put ideas into action.

Before you schedule an appointment, review some of the Frequently Asked Questions to find the answers you may need.
