Our Structure

For Express Advising students work with whoever is on duty.  

Appointments for study abroad approvals are by region. 

For other appointments students may either see the first available advisor or the person who serves as a point of contact for their last name.

  • Express advising is for 5-10 minute questions and urgent personal issues.
  • Appointments for 30 minutes can be scheduled if multiple or complex questions need to be addressed.
  • The front desk staff can assist you with internship registration and other basic advising questions.

Peer Advisors

Our peer advising team meets with first-year students to assist them with developing four year plans.
