Undergraduate Students

Find the support you need in the Student Excellence Collaborative, located in Flinn Hall. The academic management team supports and fosters your academic experience, allowing you to excel in your academic endeavors. 

Student Excellence Collaborative

The College of Arts and Sciences Student Excellence Collaborative is here to guide you through your academic career. Whether you need a form signed or a question answered, they are here to help.

Students who are enrolled in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Honors College must be advised by both colleges. You can find information on Honors College Advisement here.

The university offers pre-professional programs in medicine, health and law. You can meet with a specialized advisor to explore your path to a career in one of these fields.  Visit their website here.

In addition to an undergraduate director, each department has a designated advisement contact.
