Seeing an Adviser
The best time to see an adviser is before you have a problem
- "Bee advised, don't get stung!"
The Academic Advising Center is busiest during registration periods
and the first weeks of classes. Plan ahead to avoid these busy
times. Faculty advisers (major advisers) are not always available
during the summer months or between semesters. See the Academic Advising Center's hours and location.
