Academic Advising

As a service, the Learning Resources Center offers academic advising. The Center serves as an initial resource for students who are interested in exploring the various academic options at the College. For those students who have not declared a major (first year students and sophomores), the Center clarifies the College’s general and core educational requirements. For those students wishing to change their major, the Center provides suggestions for combining academic options with personal interests.
