Advising

The Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences Department faculty and staff cannot over-emphasize how important it is to meet with your academic advisor and to take personal responsibility for understanding your plan of study. In addition to assisting students with their semester schedules, EEGS faculty advisers also do the following:

  • Review your unofficial degree evaluation, which contains a record of your completed coursework and grades;
  • Process course substitutions and directed study paperwork as needed;
  • Help you understand how course sequence, prerequisite coursework, general education requirements, and double-counting affect your plan of study;
  • Recommend complementary minors and courses;
  • Assist in resolving scheduling issues so that you graduate in a timely fashion;
  • Discuss internship, graduate school, and career opportunities.
