Students are responsible for meeting all graduation requirements; however, advisors are available for consultation. In the college, students have access to a faculty advisor from the major department and also a staff of professional advisors who work with students in any major. The faculty advisor is an expert in the declared major. The college advising office staff works closely with degree certification, policy, and career planning. It is recommended that students seek the assistance of an advisor with questions about course selection and University academic policy. Generally, students are encouraged to meet with an advisor at least once a semester to help ensure that all necessary requirements are being completed. It is highly recommended that students maintain a file of academic records, ask questions of the advisors, and seek help to assure timely graduation.
