Academic Advising and Faculty Mentoring
As of Fall 2018, all majors on campus will be professionally advised, which means that you will be able to see an advisor in the Advising Office and use any of our resources or appointment options. If you previously had a faculty advisor, that faculty member is now your mentor, and you are still welcome to see them for any questions you have about internships, career planning, or other mentoring subjects.

Contacting Your Faculty Mentor

If you know the name of your faculty mentor, you can search for their contact information in the Phone Directory.

If you do not know who your faculty mentor is, you can find that information by doing the following:

  • Log in to WebOPUS.
  • Click Student Services, then Student Records.
  • Click Advising Information. Your mentor’s name, office location, and phone number will be shown.

The contact information for your professional advising team will also appear here. You must meet with the person designated as your primary advisor in order to register for classes.
