Students with declared majors in the College of Arts and Sciences receive advising
from faculty or professional advisors in the department of their major. Through required
advising appointments, the advisor assists students in selecting courses and fulfilling
requirements in a timely and organized manner with attention to their prior skills.
The advisor may also serve as a resource for discovering and pursuing academic and
career goals, and for information about university support services available to students.
This assistance, however, does not in any way relieve the student of the primary responsibility
for studying the Catalog and fulfilling all the requirements for the degree.
