  • degree progress and course planning for the next academic year;
  • discussing and planning program options;
  • students experiencing academic difficulty;
  • students on probation or at risk of probation, suspension, or dismissal;
  • discussing your goals, available skill-building opportunities, and planning next steps.

Meet your advisors

The BA Academic Advisors help students with course selection, as well as understanding program requirements, university processes and regulations, and the range of university services available. Every department also has faculty program advisors who are available to discuss course selection, research and potential career options.
