Undergraduate Advising

Important Academic & Registration Dates

Advising Policies

Advisors do not take walk-in appointments or advise via phone. You must schedule an appointment with your advisor in advance or email your assigned advisor directly.

Advisors will be unable to meet with undeclared/perspective COM students (particularly during peak advising seasons (October-November or March-April).

If you are an undeclared student and choose to schedule an appointment with a COM advisor, your appointment will be cancelled.
