Undergraduate Academic Advising

Upon entering the program, each student is given a faculty advisor who can answer any questions you have about your program and who is responsible for monitoring your course selections and performance. The best way to get in touch with your advisor is to stop by during his/her office hours. If you cannot attend your advisor's office hours, send electronic mail or phone him/her to set up an appointment. The Associate Directors can give you the name of your advisor, and information such as his/her office address, telephone number, and email address.

If you find that you are having problems with any course, please talk to the professor of the course as early as possible to see if there is some way to improve your performance. If this fails, talk to your academic adviser who may be able to point you to useful resources.
