Academic planning is about more than just choosing and scheduling courses.  Deciding on and qualifying for a major is an important component of academic planning.  Creating and following a term-by-term plan for the remainder of your years will help you turn your dreams into a reality.

You Have at Least Two Advisers

  • College Advisers are "generalist" advisers. They can help you understand campus-wide requirements, such as general education, academic progress, and time to degree. They can also help you identify possible majors.
  • L&S undergraduate major advisers (UMAs) focus on specific departments. They can help you understand major admission, graduation requirements, and academic planning for the major or minor.
