Academic Advising

Connect with Us!

advising is the key to reaching your educational goals.

Your advisor is here to help you explore majors, understand degree requirements, register for courses, plan for graduation and transfer, and navigate course concerns.

All degree-seeking students have an assigned academic advisor. Advisors specialize in the academic interest area outlined below. All advisors and counselors work with students who are exploring majors or pursuing liberal education or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum. Students may change advisors using the Advisor Change Request.

Appointments are available virtually through Zoom or on campus. It is recommended students meet with their assigned advisor when possible.
