Your academic journey begins with meeting your faculty advisor. Faculty advisors will help you refine your career goals and explore your professional interests.
Each semester, you will meet one-on-one with your faculty advisor who will help guide your academic and cocurricular decisions and set goals. Students remain with their assigned faculty advisor throughout their undergraduate career, so you will have the opportunity to build a relationship with someone who knows you and understands your goals.
Appointments with faculty advisors can be made any time, but typically, students meet with their advisors at least once per semester to review course selections for the following semester.
Undergraduate students are assigned to a faculty advisor in the School of Arts and Sciences and are required to select their major during the second semester of sophomore year.
Faculty advisors help you navigate the process of choosing a major and help determine what courses you need to take in order to achieve your career goals.
Advisor information is available through Campus Web and you will be connected via email during your first semester on campus.
Professional students are assigned to a faculty advisor in the School of Pharmacy.
Faculty advisors are knowledgeable about the variety of positions and career paths available in the profession of pharmacy, and most advisors have firsthand experience working in the profession.
Depending on your career goals, faculty advisors can also provide you with more information about postgraduate training opportunities like fellowship and residency programs.
