Your advisor will help you design a program that will guide you through a timely graduation with coursework best fits your academic and professional goals. 

Undergraduate students: Once you’re declared in Integrative Studies, you’ll generally meet with your advisor each October and each March to prepare for registration in the future semester. Advising takes place in person, via phone, or via email, depending upon student need.

Graduate students: We recommend you meet with your advisor each semester to review progress and plan for future enrollment.
