Advising Center

A Notice About Phone Use During Telework

Please note, due to teleworking the Advising Center staff is having difficulties with the phone system. If you can't reach your advisor by phone, please send them an email. Additional contact information is available on our staff page.

The Advising Center strives to empower all students to take ownership of their education by providing personalized, comprehensive academic advising in a supportive environment. Our mission is to foster the growth and development of students as they pursue educational plans, choose a career and set life goals.

Our holistic approach to advising students involves developing one-on-one relationships with students, supporting and encouraging their decision making processes, assisting with academic persistence and success, and serving as a professional resource to the university community.
