Academic Advising

Current Students

Academic Advisors are located in the College of Architecture's Office of Student Services.  Students are ultimately responsible for the choices they make in college, however, the University realizes that in order to make informed decisions, students need the mentoring and advice of academic advisors and others in the University community. The student's academic advisor is your primary resource regarding academic issues.

It's extremely important for students to visit with their advisor regarding prerequisites and other course requirements that may affect their progress toward graduation.  Therefore, it's recommended that students seek advice from their advisor at least once per semester.

Office Hours:  Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
