The College has a carefully planned program of student advising. In addition, individual relationships are maintained between students and instructors in the classroom and through informal conferences. After students have been admitted, they are assigned an advisor on the basis of admissions information. The advisor assists in planning academic work and in solving general problems during the student's college career. (A change in advisor may be made by making a formal request through the Registration Office.)
While the College provides academic advisement, the responsibility of meeting all degree requirements rests with the student. Students are required to officially declare their majors in the Evaluations Office during the semester in which 48-60 semester hours are scheduled for completion. The Evaluations Office completes degree checklists at 60 semester hours and 90 semester hours for use in academic advising.
