Academic advising is an ongoing process that engages students in educational planning consistent with their academic interests as well as with their personal, intellectual, and career goals. This student-centered advising process involves an active partnership among students, academic advisors, faculty advisors, and co-op coordinators.
Located in 180 Renaissance Park, the Office of Student Academic Affairs is a central place where undergraduate students in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities can go with all academic questions. This office is a good first place to go for any kind of academic concern. Academic advisors provide general guidance on academic matters and assist students in their progress from orientation through graduation.
