Academic Advising

Academic Advisors are here to assist you in obtaining your degree. They can help you understand curriculum requirements and university and college policies and procedures. All first year students are required to meet with their advisor. 

A large part of June is dedicated to working with all incoming students at SOAR (orientation).
