Before registering for classes, visit an advisor to discuss courses required for a major, understand your degree plan, and create a pathway to degree completion and success.

  • Unsure of what major to study?
    Visit an academic advisor to review degree plan options and the courses required.
  • Know where you want to go to school but aren’t sure of the classes to take?
