Your Academic Help Desk...

SCSE academic advising helps you with your academic questions from orientation to graduation.
Role of our advisors:
  • help you clarify your educational values and goals;
  • provide accurate information on educational options, policies, and procedures;
  • guide you toward an academic program in which you can be successful;
  • acquaint you with campus resources that support your academic and personal success.
Students are responsible for scheduling, preparing for, and keeping advising appointments; seeking out contacts and information and knowing the basic requirements of their degree program. Students bear the final responsibility for making their own decisions based on the best information and advice available.
