We consider advising an important part of your academic experience. To best serve you, we established an advising structure to support you in a variety of ways. A combination of advising from student services, academic departments, and career planning offices help you better explore, plan, and graduate in four years. The Academic Advising Model outlines the educational partnership between students and their advisors.
Your CLA academic advisor can provide you with the resources and information you will need to identify your strengths and interests, choose a major, be involved on campus, plan for your future, and graduate in a timely manner.
To declare a major and/or a minor, you will need to meet with a departmental advisor. After you declare your major (and/or minor), you will work closely with your departmental advisor as you choose courses, connect you to student groups, and answer questions about study abroad, grad school, and careers related to your major.
The career counselors in CLA Career Services will help you explore majors; enhance your learning experience through internships, jobs, service-learning, and other activities; research careers; prepare resumes; and help you prepare for graduate school.
