Advising Syllabus & Degree Checklist

Academic advising is a collaborative effort. Advisors will partner with you to help you make the best decisions possible, but you are in charge of your academic decisions and degree progress.

Our CHHS Advising Syllabus outlines key responsibilities and expectations each individual has in the advising relationship.

The Degree Checklist & Advising Contract provides a summary of your graduation requirements and limitations.

Students are expected to review these documents prior to meeting with a CHHS advisor.
