Academic advising provides students with academic and developmental support in adjusting to the university, decision-making, major exploration, and academic planning. University Studies students may enter the program to explore many majors within one or more interest areas, to examine two majors in depth before deciding on one or both, or to enhance their skills prior to applying to a specific major.
Every University Studies student is assigned a professional advisor who will help the student set and meet academic and personal goals during their time in the program. Advisors are available to work one-on-one with students to craft an appropriate path while allowing students to explore the variety of academic programs available to them. Student advising occurs in a variety of ways both in and out of the classroom to ensure that students’ needs are met.
Once students declare a major and leave the UST program, they will be advised by a professional advisor or faculty member in their College. Information about advising in the colleges is available on the University’s Academic Advisement webpage.
