It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of faculty regulations as stated in the Calendar. Departmental and faculty advisors and staff are available to give advice and guidance. However, the ultimate responsibility for completeness and correctness of course selection, for compliance with and completion of program and degree requirements and for observance of regulations and deadlines rests with the student.

DROP-IN HOURS (SUSPENDED)

For drop-in hours, you will need to bring an Advising Transcript with you. This can be easily accessed via the Student Information System. Click here for more information.
