Who is my advisor?

You can find out by going to the Registrar's Homepage and clicking on Banner for Students. You can also come by the department office (351 Votey Hall), and ask our Administrator, Penni French, for that information. If you have been working with or have specific interests that align with a particular faculty member, you can ask Penni to assign you to that person as your advisor. If for whatever reason you need to change advisors, you can ask Penni to help you.

While every effort is made to continue your advisor assignment from the moment you declare your major, it isn't always possible because of changes in faculty assignments (e.g. sabbatical leaves), changing program enrollments, and students changing from one program to another. So there are times when students must be reassigned. If you are reassigned to a new advisor, keep in mind that this can be a great opportunity to get to know another Computer Science faculty member.

What is the best way to get in touch with my academic advisor?

At the beginning of each semester, your advisor should post his or her office hours on their door. You can either just stop by your advisor’s office during office hours, or you can contact him or her by e-mail or phone to schedule an appointment. If you have difficulty reaching your advisor, please either come by the department office (351 Votey Hall), email ( or call (656-3330), and ask the department administrative assistant to help.
