- Major advising is handled through the major department (locations vary).
- Major advisors review the student's DARS report and discuss advisor approved electives or any major substitutions.
- All substitutions or changes in a student's major plan are made by the major advisor.
- Major advisors then create a memo explaining all substitutions.

- Official memos will be scanned and held in the student's electronic jacket and reviewed upon filing for graduation.
- Substitutions and waivers may not necessarily be reflected in the student's DARS report.
