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.

Lori Schroeder, Associate Dean of the College, can help you change advisors or if you need to add, drop, or withdraw from a course or arrange for an emergency incomplete.  You should call 341-7215 or e-mail Come to Old Main 101 for those appointments.  Dean Schroeder also fields questions about Honors projects, which must be approved through her office.

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