HOW DOES ADVISING WORK?

Students meet with advisors in two areas: a Major Advisor, who is located in the major department, and a College Advisor, who is in the Advising Center for CALL (that’s us!). Be sure you know and meet regularly with both!

Major Advisors have expertise in the subject matter of the major. They know more details about course sequencing or future availability of some of the courses. They make decisions on exceptions to major requirements for your degree.

College Advisors have a broad knowledge of academic advising as a whole. They provide guidance on completion of general education and graduation requirements. They also process and clear students for graduation. They make decisions on exceptions to college and university requirements for your degree.
