If I visit a CHP Student Service Center academic advisor, do I still need to see my faculty advisor?
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.
What should I plan to bring to my appointment with the CHP Student Service Center academic advisor?
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.
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.
Can my parents speak with my academic advisor?
Advisors are limited to what information can be shared with parents due to federal laws.
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 for filling out the necessary forms.
Can an advisor in the CHP Student Service Center 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. Call and set up and appointment to meet with an academic advisor.
Is the CHP Student Service Center available for students who are on academic probation?
