Academic Advisement Services

The Counseling Center provides Academic Advisement for students who have less than 29.9 credits. Advisement at the Counseling Center focuses primarily on completion of the General Education requirements. For students who are interested in pursuing a major in one of the pre-professional programs (Physician Assistant, Occupational Therapy, Pre-Medicine/Pre-Dental, Social Work & Biotechnology), in addition to General Education requirements, advisement also includes pre/co-requisite courses and other pre-major requirements.
