Who Are Academic Advisors?

Academic advisors are educators and problem solvers who advocate for students as they navigate their personal journeys through higher education and attain their academic goals. Through inclusion and connection, academic advisors open doors to new opportunities for self-awareness and growth, empowering students to define their roles as citizens within local and global communities. Academic Advising helps you to know your stuff, know what to do early and what to do often. To book an academic advising appointment, visit or email .

As potential students in the College of Fine Arts, you have many people to support you. As College of Fine Arts academic advisors, we can create success where you study at the U:

  • Learn about the course requirements for your major and University graduation requirements, including general education and bachelor’s degree requirements
  • Connect with departmental opportunities and resources
  • Connect with University opportunities and resources, including other majors and minors that might interest you
  • Navigate University and departmental polices and procedures, including your student rights
Your Rights as a Student

Your educational record is an important part of your education. Once you are an enrolled student, the rights granted to you by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) means that the advisor cannot discuss your educational record, including grades or your transcript with any third-party outside of the University without your consent.
