Academic Advising Mentors

Our Academic Advising Mentors can help you choose classes, read your MyAudit report, revise your 4-year plan, and answer any other questions you may have. They have also been trained to help freshmen and sophomores with common questions such as planning schedules, summer school options, finding on-campus resources, course sequencing, and much more.  Their walk-in hours are listed below.
