Now that the Navigate Advising Team is fully staffed, please remember that returning students who are continuing in their program of study will be referred to their faculty advisor if they need academic planning assistance. Returning students who are considering a program change will be referred to the Program Advisor responsible for their prospective major. New students and non-curricular students should be referred to the Advising Center to meet with a New Student Advisor.
Please refer students needing assistance searching for available class times, processing enrollment in courses, or printing an Advisement Report to the Registration Room in Duncan 212 (Monday-Thursday 8:00-5:30pm; Friday 8:00-5:00pm). The Registration Room will be available April 11th through May 16th and June 23rd through August 27th.
