Frequently asked questions about academic advising
If I visit an academic advisor, do I still need to see my faculty advisor?
Yes. Academic advisors will help you with your major map, but you will still need a faculty advisor to sign your major. It is also helpful to build a relationship with an expert in the field of your interest.
How often should I plan to meet with an academic advisor?
You should meet with an academic advisor, either in the CHP student service center or your faculty advisor, at least once a semester to discuss your plans and to make sure you are on track to graduate in a timely manner.
How do I sign my major(s) and/or minor(s)?
You need to officially sign your major by the time you have 56 credit hours unless otherwise stated by your designated major. You should contact your faculty advisor to schedule a time to fill out the necessary forms.
Can an academic advisor help me with questions about a major or career options?
Yes. If you are undecided but know that you would like to go into a health-related field, then we can help you find the right major and career path for you.
Is the CHP student service center available for students who are on academic probation?
Yes. Regardless of your academic status, we can answer your questions and are here to help in any way possible.
