The College of Arts and Letters has staff advisors who are here to further extend the educational commitments set forth by the College’s mission statement and to facilitate department information. While we do not take the place of faculty advisors, we can provide current students with relevant information about university requirements, policies, and procedures.

In addition, we assist students with:

  • Understanding general education, university, and major academic requirements
  • Developing personalized academic plans to help students monitor progress toward graduation
  • Planning for registration
  • Completing appropriate department and campus forms
  •  Referrals to appropriate campus resources
  • Probation and disqualification advisement
  • Freshmen and Transfer Orientations

We encourage students to take an active role in advisement by initiating the following before each meeting:

  • Review your academic advisement report (CAAR) in GET prior to meeting with an advisor
  • Check the Schedule of Classes well before each quarter begins
  •  Note all relevant University Deadlines (such as the fees,adds, drops,etc.)
  • Come to each advisement appointment prepared with a list of questions or concerns to be discussed
  • Bring a tentative plan and be prepared to identify and discuss obstacles with a staff advisor that may cause academic difficulties
  • Bring any previous documents (curriculum sheet, GE worksheet, yearly plan, forms, etc.) regarding academic plans to review and answer questions
  • Follow through with recommendations agreed on during previous sessions to ensure progressive steps towards graduation and to maximize the outcome of each advisement session
