Let Student Success Advisors Help With Navigation Toward Graduation

The Spring semester is over, but students may be facing uncertainty about classes for next semester. Liberal Arts Student Success Advisors can help. Advisors can assist students in determining which classes to take and help students chart the most effective course to graduation. 

When you visit your advisor, having an idea of classes you would like to take will put you at a great advantage. This helps us serve you better by allowing us to devote more time to talk with you about GPA requirements, dates and deadlines, opportunities on campus, and other Transformative Learning opportunities.
