Academic Advising

Academic advising within the College of Health & Human Performance is provided by professional advisors. Integral to the College’s goal of offering the highest quality educational experience to intelligent and motivated students, our professional staff work with faculty to facilitate a student’s academic and career exploration.

Advisors provide leadership, guidance and information to students, but to make informed decisions and fulfill personal goals, students must take a responsible and active role in their own advising. Be sure to reach out to your major advisor early.
