Academic Advisors

The AOE Department uses a professional advising system in which advisors provide academic support and guidance regarding many topics.  Areas of support from AOE advisors include: course selection, degree planning, career advising, undergraduate research, course withdrawals, study skills, co-ops/internships and study abroad.  Advisors are also able to assist with course substitution requests and force-adds for AOE courses.  As appropriate, they may make referrals for students to other campus service providers.
