Faculty Advisors

Faculty advisors provide assistance in planning a program of study consistent with the students’ educational and employment objectives. All students with a declared major are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor during Advising Month, which is held each semester prior to registration, or any time they have questions regarding their technical program courses.

Students can look up their specific faculty advisors in eServices under Courses & Registration > View/Modify Schedule, and may schedule a time to meet by contacting the advisor directly.  See the Employee Directory for faculty contact information.
