CFPCA Advising: How does advising work?

​Each entering student in the College of Fine, AdvisingPerforming and Communication Arts is assigned an academic advisor. For prospective students with questions about our programs, feel free to contact an advisor in your program of interest. Advisors are glad to help.

What do advisors do?

Your advisor will guide you to articulate your goals, create your individualized plan of work, and identify other opportunities and resources that will enhance your growth and success.

Meeting your advisor

You will meet your advisor when you attend a freshman or transfer orientation session before your first semester begins. After that, make an appointment with your advisor EARLY IN YOUR FIRST SEMSESTER to start mapping out your longer-term plan of work. After that, plan to meet with your advisor every semester.

University Advising Center

Advisors provide services to students interested in medical, dental or veterinary medicine, students who are completing pre-professional requirements for Pharmacy and Health Science programs, Nursing and Social Work, students exploring, declaring, or changing majors, and prospective freshmen and transfer students.
