Academic Advising


The College of Arts + Architecture (CoAA) has a wealth of resources available for students seeking academic and professional advice. These resources include professional Academic Advisors, Faculty Advisors, and Undergraduate Studies Program Coordinators who dedicate their time and expertise to provide degree-program guidance to our students.

Academic Advising Philosophy

Our mission is to create a decision-making framework in which students are required to be active participants in their education, which in turn allows them to identify and accomplish their educational goals. Advising in the CoAA is a collaborative process between students and advisors, providing a structure for academic success and guiding students through their respective department's curriculum.
