The goal of Academic Advising is to create a welcoming environment for students: to motivate, inspire, and empower students from their first day on campus at orientation all the way to graduation. Through innovation, dedication, and technology, you will benefit from a skilled staff of advisors dedicated to helping you find your path and your success. Schedule an appointment and prepare to excel. 

Academic Advising

Advisors can assist with enrolling in classes, declaring/changing your major or minor, and providing overall support to successfully graduate. Academic advisors are available by appointment.

Current Student Checklist

Take control of your class list by overseeing your current student checklist. The checklist provides information on financial aid status, advisor, advising enrollment date, and so much more.

    Not sure what to major in just yet? Don't worry, you aren't alone! Lots of Redhawks aren't quite sure what they want to major in when starting school, and even more change their minds! We can help you explore and declare a major with a few simple steps. 

  • Declare or change your major or minor

    Are you looking to change or declare your major or minor? It's as simple as filling out a form and working with an advisor. 

  • Program Finder

    With a variety of different majors and minors to choose from, you can find the right path for you by working with an advisor and checking out our Program Finder.

My professors and advisor are nothing short of amazing. They are so understanding and more than willing to help in any way.
