Advisement Center

Meet Our Advisors

While the University Advisement Center is here to answer questions of all kinds, we are only serving as academic advisors for first-year students, all students in pre-professional health fields, and first-semester transfer students in select Colleges.

Sophomores, juniors and seniors should seek advisement from their faculty mentor or school advisor. To identify your assigned academic advisor, check SOAR (instructions here).
