Yes. CHP Student Service Center 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.

Come prepared by bringing a copy of your Bulletin and orientation documentation if applicable (transfer students only). We recommend that you keep copies of all forms and documents for your records.

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.

Advisors are limited to what information can be shared with parents due to federal laws.

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 for filling out the necessary forms.
