Academic Advising Options

Virtual Advising Center

The Virtual Advising Center is a great way to contact your advisor if you have a quick question, can't stop by in person, or the advising office isn't open.

Peer Advising

Peer Advising is best for quick questions about course requirements, pre-requisites, and other major and minor related information.


Appointments are better for more detailed information like career advising and individualized quarter by quarter plans.
