Students entering the University are assigned an academic counselor/adviser who provides assistance to students regarding appropriate courses, career options, and related matters. Advisement is mandatory for all students prior to registration each term.
Generally, students may apply for major status at any time, but some schools have admission criteria which must be met prior to admission to a major. Application for major status must be completed prior to the senior year.
Students remain with the assigned counselor/adviser until admitted to a major. After students are admitted to a major, they are advised by advisers in the department.
