Your academic advisor has expertise in scholarly issues pertaining to your major.
Faculty advisors can also assist with study abroad transfer credit.
How are students assigned an advisor?
First-year students are assigned a professional advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Dean's Office. Students beyond the first year who have a declared major are assigned a faculty advisor within their declared field. Minors in French and Italian who wish to have a minor advisor should contact the program to request one. CAS Student Services can also help with other resources, including advising and support concerning student health, writing and learning skills, general career planning, academic accommodations, and more.
