Assigned faculty advisors are our primary advising resource, however there are numerous advising programs and activities available on campus and may include the following:
- New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation (NSO) is required for new or returning students and is one of the first opportunities for students to learn about services and receive assistance with their academic plans. This program is designed to introduce students to key student service offices, such as Financial Aid, Records and Registration, information about student support services, campus resources, and the opportunity to meet with a faculty representative in their program of interest.
- Undecided Students
Students that are undecided about their major can seek career exploration and planning services with a member of our counseling staff. Students have the opportunity to further examine their career interests, work values, and aptitudes by completing career exploration activities that will assist them with making the best career choice.

Information Sessions are held several times a semester for students to learn about their academic program of study, explore other programs, and meet their advisor or a faculty member in their program of interest.
