Working With Your Advisor

Just as there are different ways you can get in touch with an advisor (via email, phone, by appointment, etc.) there are different reasons to use each of these contact methods. Learn more about the options Academic Advising recommends for you, based on the timing or type of question you have under Contacting Your Advisor.

Additionally, while an academic advisor is well-versed in many facets of your degree program, there are times when we will direct you to the right person to contact. Learn more about what things advisors tend to help with and which offices or individuals we recommend you contact for other issues under Know Who to Contact for Your Questions.

Advising Terminology
