Academic Advising Team

The Office of Undergraduate Programs Academic Advising Team operates under an open team advising model, where students can schedule appointments either at a time that best fits their schedule or with a specific advisor.

Unsure who to email? For general questions and declaring concentrations you can email [email protected]. Please do not email multiple advisors the same request, as it creates a delay in response for you and other students.
