Message from our advising director

Academic Advising is one of the most important services the university offers to help students navigate the college experience. Academic Advising is a shared responsibility between the student and advisor.  Your advisor will assist by providing information and resources. You are responsible for choosing and planning your individual program and meeting academic deadlines and requirements. Advisors encourage you to think critically, seek out resources, and develop action plans and goals.  Advisors provide the information and encouragement you need to take personal responsibility for exploring options and making decisions. 

The College of Health and Public Service includes programs in Dental Hygiene, Healthcare Administration, Nursing, Public Health, Respiratory Therapy, Criminal Justice, Emergency Services, Forensic Science, and National Security Studies.  Our academic advisors see students based on their major and last name.  The advisors are located in different buildings, both on and off main campus.  When scheduling an appointment, please note the address and location of the advisor's building.

Our advisors are committed to helping all students throughout their education journey by providing exceptional care, accountability and results.  Please send me an email if you have any questions regarding your advising experience.
