Undergraduate Advising

All College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS) undergraduate students are encouraged to meet with a professional academic advisor each semester.

Our Academic Advisors are here to help you define your goals and chart the most efficient path to graduation! We recommend you meet with your advisor at least one time per semester to ensure you are on the right track. 

You can utilize your advising appointments for things like:

  • course planning
  • goal setting
  • change of major or selection of major
  • assistance understanding the university's academic policies and procedures
  • degree and graduation audits
  • addressing academic challenges and barriers
  • filling out petitions
  • referrals to other services

If you have questions regarding financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships. If you have questions regarding commencement or transcripts, please contact the Office of the Registrar.

For Prospective Students

CEHHS Advisors are available to meet with students transferring from other institutions as well as graduating high school seniors.

  • Prospective student appointments are utilized to discuss program requirements, transfer credits, and to provide guidance on major selection, if needed.
  • To schedule a prospective student advising appointment, please complete the CEHHS Prospective Student Appointment Request Form.
    • If you are a transfer student, this form will require you to attach unofficial copies of your transcript(s) for review.
