Paul L. Foster Success Center

Welcome to University Advisement

We have recently changed our name from Academic Advisement to University Advisement, but our mission remains the same. We serve students with less than 30 completed hours and who have majors in Pre-Business, Pre-Social Work, selected majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, and undeclared majors. We offer services designed to help students clarify and fulfill their academic goals and aspirations. In partnerships with students, professional advisors provide assistance with developing academic plans and offer guidance in selecting courses. Advisement staff are available to answer questions and connect students with appropriate resources on campus and beyond.
