STEM Advisement

Advisors in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics serve as facilitators of communication, coordinating learning experiences through course and career planning and academic progress review.

Advisors can provide referral to other campus student resources as necessary, and serve as mentors who encourage students to act as engaged citizens in the college community and the wider world around them.

Schedule an appointment with your STEM advisor if you have any questions or concerns about your major.

The STEM Advising Center is located in room 2325 on the second floor of Moser Hall.
