Advisement

Undergraduate

Science and mathematics majors are assisted by professional advisors specifically-trained on the progression requirements for College of Science and Mathematics programs. Freshmen, sophomore, and new transfer students must meet with their academic advisor at least once each semester to discuss major requirements, course selection, registration, personal goals and other student concerns. The University also provides specialized advisors who will guide and assist students who seek to pursue a medical professions program of study such as Pre-Medicine, Pre-Dental Medicine, Pre-Veterinary Medicine, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physician Assistant (PA), or Pre-Optometry. While advisors provide information and guidance, final responsibility for completion of all degree requirements, including those for pre-professional programs, rests with the student.
