Academic Advising

Academic advisers can help with your academic questions and concerns. They can help you choose a major, guide you in fulfilling the course requirements towards that major, and suggest resources if you are struggling.

Before declaring a major, you will work with an academic adviser who can explain requirements and procedures and help you plan for your major. Once you have declared a major, the faculty and adviser will prepare your program of classes as well as guide you in the application process applying to a US University.
