LAS emphasizes individual responsibility, and students take charge of their own academic program. While this means adhering to deadlines and satisfying degree requirements, advisors are there to help all along the way.
Advising for students who have declared a major.
Assistance for all LAS students on major academic matters and degree audits, and advising for specialized programs.
General Advising Guidelines
- Entering freshmen and transfer students participating in summer registration are advised by a staff of LAS professional, faculty, and graduate assistant academic advisors as well as by regularly designated departmental advisors.
- Once students achieve sophomore standing (30 credits), most are authorized to complete their own course transactions, except for the credit/no credit option. This practice allows for convenience, efficiency, and flexibility of student choice. But the "self-authorization" extended to students at registration is not meant to imply "self-advising." All students are encouraged to consult with their advisors and the college staff.
