All CSSH students have:
- a professional academic advisor located in the Office for Student Academic Affairs;
- an Undergraduate Program Director located in the student’s major department or program; and
- students who participate in the co-op program have a co-op coordinator.
The academic advisors are a good place to start for most questions on navigating CSSH or the university. Co-op coordinators and Undergraduate Program Directors are also available to meet one-on-one with students to discuss academic goals, as well as concerns.
Some advising services may require an appointment with an advisor, but students can complete some requests on their own using the forms or worksheets provided in this section. Using the links below, students can access information from across the university, 24/7.
The college and the university also have special programming in place to serve as additional resources for CSSH students. Students who are interested in learning more about navigating the university, or students who are interested in taking a leadership role on campus, can explore the programming below under Student Community.
Funding for Unanticipated Expenses
The Fund for Unanticipated Expenses is intended to ensure that all CSSH students are able to participate in experiential and classroom learning and co- and extracurricular activities. We want CSSH students to thrive as members of the college and university community, even when encountering financial challenges. Funds are available to students experiencing immediate, unanticipated, one-time needs that exceed their resources. They are not intended to support recurring or daily expenses such as rent, meal plans, university tuition and fees, medical insurance or continuing care, or transit.
Academic Services Directory
The Academic Services Directory is a reference tool designed to help you identify and locate the various advising services in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities. Use this reference sheet to find the location and contact information for your academic advisor, Undergraduate Program Director, and co-op coordinator.
Students can view the Advising Syllabus to learn more about the specifics of the advisor/advisee relationship.
