Advising & Admissions

Undergraduate Students

The Student Services Office is staffed with full-time advisors to help students with all academic concerns such as registration and scheduling of classes, withdrawals, overload requests, academic planning, curriculum requirements, grade issues, professional and graduate school preparation, and graduation checks.

We can also help you get a head start on your career by visiting with our Career Counselor who is available to current students and alumni through Career Services and can assist with career assessments, resume writing, cover letters, mock interviews, and career fair preparation.
