New faculty do not advise students during their first year of employment, and must receive training before they do advise.
All students are assigned an advisor. First year students are assigned to Freshman Advisors, and also receive some college orientation and advising services in the required COR 1 classes. Students who have decided on a major are assigned to a Professional Advisor or Faculty Advisor in their major department. Full-time faculty in departments with Faculty Advisors typically advise 20-25 students.
Students should be referred to their Academic Advisor for questions about academic policies and degree requirements, and must meet with advisors each semester before registering for classes.
