CFPCA Advising: How does advising work?

‚ÄčEach entering student in the College of Fine, Performing 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

For first year students, you will meet your advisor when you attend a freshman orientation session before your first semester begins. For transfer students, please make an appointment with your advisor once you have been admitted to the university so that you can go over your transfer courses and begin to create a plan of work. For all students, plan to meet with your advisor at least once per year.

Office of Military and Veterans Academic Excellence

For CFPCA students who are veterans, the Office of Military and Veterans Academic Excellence is housed in the University Advising Center (UAC). In addition, the UAC advises students interested in medical, dental or veterinary medicine, or who are completing pre-professional requirements for pharmacy and health science programs, nursing and social work.
