General advising

The College of Arts and Humanities Advising and Support Center — located in Speech Arts, room 156 — acts a central location for all general advising information intended for students, faculty, and staff. The information is categorized depending on who and where you are in your academic journey: prospective students, current students, returning students, or graduate students.
