Explore the links on the left for answers to many of your questions. Empower yourself with information and get familiar with using your degree evaluation. But don't let any of this admirable autonomy substitute for checking in regularly with your academic advisor! Our program's undergraduate director, undergraduate coordinator, and your assigned faculty advisor are all here to help you reach your academic goals.

Please see your advisor’s faculty webpage for location and office hours. Before you see your advisor, print out and bring a copy of your degree evaluation from Patriot Web (step-by-step instructions).
