International Academic Advising
International Academic Advisors are faculty advisors who help students make important decisions about their academic and future career plans. By working with an advisor, students are able to make the connection between their academic interests, degree requirements, and career opportunities.
Our advisors can:
- Help you create and follow an educational plan
- Help you add, change, or drop classes
- Assist you in the F-1 immigration process
- Help you apply for graduation
- Guide you through the university transfer process
- Help you adjust to cultural changes and college life
Connect with an advisor
During Zoom Drop-in Advising, students can drop or change classes, submit paperwork, submit requests (vacation request, reduce coursework), and are able to ask urgent questions that cannot wait for an appointment.
We are closed on Fridays during summer operating hours.
