Academic Advising and Transfer Transition


The Office of Academic Advising

"Students First, Support Always"

The Office of Academic Advising and Transfer Transition is a hub for an array of academic advising services as we provide a supportive environment for students to explore academic opportunities. All students are welcome to drop in or schedule an appointment with a professional advisor to receive academic guidance or help with course registration. We also have a team of trained peer advisors that provide assistance with course selection and the preregistration process.


Academic advising plays an integral role in the success of a student’s academic career.

The following services are provided to students:

  • Assistance with course selection, the preregistration process, and other academic concerns
  • Advice regarding academic progress, degree completion, and graduation requirements
  • Assistance for students who have not declared a major with the process of exploring possible academic majors
  • Opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations about educational and career goals
  • Assistance with the process of returning to good academic standing for students on Academic Warning
  • Assistance with exploring academic success strategies and providing referrals to other student support services 
  • Planning for alternate credit-earning opportunities, such as internships or the CLEP exam
  • Access to Professional Advisors who serve as a link to various academic departments and campus offices, such as the Registrar or the Office of Financial Aid


The Office of Academic Advising empowers students to take ownership of their educational experience and responsibility for achieving their academic goals by providing individualized academic advising in a supportive environment.


The Office of Academic Advising serves as a liaison with academic departments, faculty advisors, and relevant administrative areas (e.g., Registrar, Office of Financial Aid) in an effort to assist students in developing the skills needed to be successful during their educational experience.

Course Withdraw Deadline

The course withdrawal policy allows a student to leave a course after the add/drop period with a “W” notation on the transcript before the designated deadline. The Fall 2022 course withdraw deadline is Tuesday, November 22, 2022. To elect a course withdraw, a student must complete the course withdrawal form that requires the professor’s and the signature of the student’s advisor. The Registrar office will accept completed forms in-person until 4:30pm EST on November 22.

If you are enrolled in a Fall 2022 Session B course, the last day to withdraw is Friday, December 2, 2022.  The course withdrawal form is also attached to this email for your convenience.

Withdrawing from a course can protect your overall GPA, but excessive use of the course withdrawal policy will negatively impact on-time degree progress or financial obligations (e.g., insurance coverage or satisfactory academic progress). We recommend that students consult with an academic advisor—faculty or professional advisor—and with a financial aid officer about the implications of a course withdraw. Withdrawing can impact student athlete eligibility, student athletes should speak with a coach or compliance coordinator regarding academic concerns and the course withdrawal policy.  

If there are questions about the course withdrawal process, all are also welcome to contact the Registrar’s Office at or visit the Registrar office located in Scanlon Hall, second floor.
