Academic Advising Center
The Academic Advising Center provides advising for undeclared, pre-majors, AHEAD and non-degree seeking students. We typically assist General Studies and pre-major students with registration, adding or dropping classes, creating a four-year plan, exploring possible majors and discussing academic difficulties.
