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. While we serve students from all majors and all stages of their academic career, we have a focus on assisting students in our BA/BS programs, particularly those who are new students, undeclared, or interested in changing majors.

Every student in the College is assigned to an official advisor who may be a professional academic advisor from Liberal Studies or the 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.
