Undergraduate Advising and Planning

 

The department's flexible undergraduate curriculum offers students the chance to design a course of study that fits their interests and goals. It also places responsibility on students to choose their course of study wisely. Advising is a significant part of the program: students must see their advisor during preregistration, and they are encouraged to talk with their advisor, the Chief Advisor, and the Undergraduate Program Assistant whenever they need advice or assistance.
