The Advising Center promotes student success by providing students with the information, guidance and support they need to make informed decisions.

Throughout the advising process students are provided with opportunities to:
- Learn about educational options, degree requirements and University policies
- Clarify educational, career and life goals through the development of a meaningful academic plan
- Become familiar with support services and resources
Monday through Friday: 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
