Advising during COVID-19

In alignment with the campus directives regarding precautions surrounding COVID-19, the ANT, ME/SA and SOC Advising Office is now physically closed.  Our Advisors remain available and will be offering academic advising appointments to students through Zoom online or by phone.  Once you have scheduled your appointment through the online appointment system, your advisor will reach out to you via email with instructions on how to connect with them

Advising Office

Help is here when you need it. Staff and peer advisors are available to assist students individually with academic planning, course selection, career exploration, and other matters related to the major and staying on course toward graduation. Until the end of October, advisors are available to you via email, phone, or Zoom appointment. Check back here for updates about advising in November and December.
