Fall 2020 Advising Note: for the Fall 2020 semester, undergraduate advising will be offered via e-mail. Please consult our major requirement worksheets for common questions about planning your schedule. When e-mailing your advisor, please start your e-mail with your (1) name, (2) student ID, (3) your major concentration, and (4) your expected graduation date (e.g., Spring 2022). Please describe as precisely as you can the questions that you have. This will avoid a delay in our response if we need to clarify your questions/concerns. Your advisor will get in touch within three business days. If a virtual appointment needs to be set up, it can be done so directly with your advisor.
