Do I Still Need Advising?

That all depends on several factors (e.g., GPA, academic standing). Double Check just to make sure. However, even if you don't NEED to be advised, you can always see your advisor if you WANT to be advised.

Has My Advisor Changed?

That's a great question. Like any workplace, people leave and new people are hired. Check out the Who's My Advisor? webpage and select your major to find out.

Visit the About Us webpage to learn who currently advises at the SAM Center.

Do I Still Need An Appointment?

Yes. Appointments are the best option, but we do have limited walk-in availability - first come, first served.

If you don't remember how, go to the How Do I Get Advised? page for instructions.

If you feel confident, log into Campus Connect and get started.
