Academic advising is an integral part of each student's educational experience and it takes many forms. Academic advisors in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS) provide students with information on academic requirements needed for degree completion, help students plan for future graduate study or a career, and serve as a point of contact for campus resurces. Academic advising is a shared responsibility between the student and the advisor.
Advising appointments are available via Zoom, phone, or by email, depending on the circumstances.
Advisors in the BSOS Advising Center can also connect students with their major advisors within the college.
If you are looking for a credit-bearing internship, you can check the BSOS Undergraduate Blog or your academic department’s listserv or blog, but you may also wish to explore the BSOS Internship Program the campus Internship Website, or the University Career Center @ BSOS Job/Internship Search Strategies. Note that many students choose not to earn academic credit for internships and instead highlight these important experiences on their resumes instead.
If you run into academic difficulty, your academic advisor may contact you. But, if you are experiencing problems or know that your GPA is in danger, please be proactive about seeking help from your advisor early. Please review the important information about academic probation and dismissal procedures.
