Advising provides students with a personal connection to the university and to the HDFS department. Your academic success is important to us. Getting the most out of advising appointments requires both student and adviser to be prepared, flexible, and respectful.
Students are assigned an HDFS adviser upon officially entering the department. Adviser assignments can be found on AccessPlus.
Contacting your adviser
Contact your adviser whenever you have questions. You should make an appointment to visit with them at least once every semester before the registration period begins. Email is often the most convenient way to reach your adviser.
Why visit your adviser?
Advisers can help you:
The more you get to know your adviser and allow him or her to get to know you, your strengths, goals, and interests, the more satisfying and beneficial the relationship becomes. Advisers want you to be successful in your college experience and in achieving your academic and personal goals. The more they know you, the better advocate they can be for you.
