Academic Advising

ACADEMIC ADVISING

Academic advising is mandatory for all undergraduate degree-seeking students prior to each semester. Graduate students also have access to an academic advisor who can help with course planning and degree completion. All SOM academic advisors can assist with registration, petitions, change of major requests and answer any number of questions related to the college experience.
