Class advisors

Academic advisors are assigned to each class to help guide undergraduates through the process of course selection and choosing topics for independent work.  Considering their experience in the field, advisors can also help with other questions about getting jobs or internships.  You will meet with your academic advisor at least twice a year to discuss the courses you want to take each semester.

Your advisor has a web calendar.  See the list of advisors and click on the link to make an appointment.  If none of the times work for you, you can make an appointment most easily by email. You are responsible for deadlines. In particular, if you want to drop a course, you must do so by the 9th week of classes. If you need a signature at the last minute because you procrastinated and your advisor is not available, you will not get help from other faculty members. Choose courses, ask questions, drop courses, etc., in a timely fashion.
