Who is my advisor and how is she/he assigned?
The Office of the Dean of Student Affairs will match first-years to pre-major academic advisors according to students' academic interests conveyed in the Academic Advising Questionnaire. Incoming students will fill out and return this form in early summer. During Orientation first-years will learn which advisor they were assigned to and will meet with their advisor with a small group of other first-years as well as in one-on-one meetings.
If you are a transfer student, your upper-class dean will help you navigate course registration for your first semester and also provide you with some potential options of professors who might be a good match for you as an advisor in the future.
