The LAS Academic Advising Center is comprised of full-time professional academic advisors who are available to undergraduate students and serve as representatives of the Dean. LAS operates under a two-tiered academic advising model. This means that students have two main advising contacts to guide them in navigating their undergraduate academic career. LAS advisors exist to advise students from Orientation to Graduation and will aid in students' overall academic development and completion of degree requirements. Departmental advisors are available to assist students in navigating the requirements of their chosen, or potential, major or minor. In addition, LAS offers pre-professional advisors to facilitate students' completion of course requirements for pre-health and pre-law educational goals.
Academic Advising Mission Statement
The Office of Student Academic Affairs of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences recognizes that undergraduate students expect to receive a quality education in a quality environment. It is the role of Student Academic Affairs to assure that, in the continuum from admission through graduation, the student's individual educational needs are met while maintaining the academic standards established by the faculty of the College. As a primary source of College information, the staff of LAS Student Academic Affairs promotes and facilitates excellence through academic advising.
We believe that our services should assist in maximizing the academic experience and student achievement in the expectation that students will become lifelong learners and attain their career objectives. These services are provided with expertise, courtesy, and a positive attitude.
