After the tour, Advisors in undergraduate academic services will be available for a brief advising session to help with your academic plans.  Students may bring an unofficial copy of their transcript for each college attended. The adviser will not be able to do an evaluation of all transfer credits, but will be able to look over the record and perhaps recommend courses to take before you transfer.

The Pre-Transfer Advising

Students are encouraged to use pre-transfer advising services to assess their readiness to transfer and estimate their time to degree completion.
