Frequently Asked Questions

How are major advisors assigned?

If you have a preference for a faculty member to be your major advisor, please send your request to once you declare the major. If not, you will be assigned an advisor based on availability of advisors. If you don't have a specific person in mind, but you would like to be matched with someone with similar interests, email the DUS to set up an appointment.
