Divisional Advisors

Not sure of your major yet? Divisional Advisors can help! These advisors are Faculty Associates of a residential college who are selected and engaged by College Magisters to provide academic advising to you prior to your declaring a major. Each Divisional Advisor…

  • Serves their residential college by representing one of the four major undergraduate academic divisions*:
    • humanities
    • social sciences
    • natural sciences
    • engineering
  • Is trained by and works closely with the Office of Academic Advising (OAA) to keep up to date on academic rules and regulations, graduation requirements, educational opportunities, academic resources, and other important or time-sensitive information.
  • Can advise you on a wide range of topics including personal interests, course choices, short and long term plans, and co-curricular opportunities, to name a few.
  • Has tremendous knowledge, insights, and experiences to share, but does not have expertise in all majors, so they will often also refer students to Major Advisors in academic departments or advisors in collaborative offices across campus (ex. Center for Career Development, Study Abroad, Center for Civic Leadership, etc.).

*Due to their smaller size, the Schools of Architecture and Music have specific advisors within their respective schools.
