Undergraduate Advising

The College of Biological Sciences provides a comprehensive advising program for undergraduates. Major advisers are out in the College's departments and provide guidance for completion of major requirements. The Dean's Office advisers help students with many things including: help with general education and college requirements; academic difficulties; forms and petitions; graduation and commencement.
