Academic Advising

Several resources are available for assistance with academic decisions. All students have an academic advisor to whom they go for selecting courses for the next term (pre-enrollment) and whose signature is needed for many things, such as adding or dropping a course. Your advisor is also someone with whom you can discuss your educational goals and create a plan of study to meet your intellectual interests and your career goals. Your advisor can help you make sure you are meeting all of your graduation requirements, though it is principally your responsibility to know them.

The Office of the Dean of the College is another source for academic advising. Associate Dean of the College Lori Schroeder can help you change advisors or if you need to add, drop or withdraw from a course or arrange for an emergency incomplete.  

The Gerald and Carol Vovis Center for Research and Advanced Study helps students design Honors projects and also assists students who wish to apply for support for research (through the Richter program) or who are interested in undergraduate fellowships (Ford, in particular).  The Vovis Center staff also assist students who wish to apply to graduate school and fellowships.
