Advising

Students interested in a major or minor offered by the College of Science and Engineering are strongly encouraged, as soon as possible in their college career, to contact an advisor within the appropriate discipline(s). These advisors are intimately familiar with the degree requirements and can recommend the sequence of classes best suited for each student. 

They can also describe the culture, extracurricular activities, and job opportunities associated with their degree programs. Depending upon the department, this advisor may be the department chair, a program director, a specific faculty member within the department, or any other faculty member. To find the appropriate person, students should contact the department directly and ask for advising assistance.
