Find Your Path and Learn the Ropes

Evaluate your major and make sure it is the right fit for you. Visit your Academic Advisor at least 1-2 times a semester. Know your major/minor requirements and map out your course schedule for all four years. Some classes are only offered certain semesters and you’ll need to plan for those. And make sure your classes fit your plan to graduate. Contact Financial Aid to see if you qualify for any aid or scholarships.
