Advising Info:

  • There are two kinds of academic advisors. You have access to both:

SOUSA advisors can help you with...

Freshman program advising, degree planning, degree requirements, University and Faculty regulations, study away/exchange, readmission, final exam issues, interfaculty transfers, etc.

SOUSA advisors cannot help you register for restricted or full courses, but they can direct you to the right person or office. You can also see the Departmental Contacts list for registration issues.

Program advisors can help you with...

Program (major, minor, etc.) requirements, getting the most out of your program, research, graduate school in their field, careers, etc.

Some advisors are also responsible for course registration issues (restrictions, full courses), but not all advisors do this. See the Departmental Contacts list for help with getting into specific courses.
