Academic advisors are here to expand the educational world of our students. We are committed to helping students move forward in their academic journey and in life.
The Advising Center supports and supplements the College’s faculty-based advising program. We serve all students across all programs at all phases of their academic standing with focus on assisting new freshman and transfers, undeclared students, and those who are interested in changing majors.

- To discuss any other questions or concerns you have regarding your academic career.
Every student in the College is assigned to an official advisor who may be a professional academic advisor from Advising Center, a full-time professor within the student’s board of study, or their First-Year Seminar instructor.
Students can locate their advisor’s name by looking at their Degree Progress Report (DPR), which can be viewed by logging into myHeliotrope.
