Academic Advising

Students are advised by faculty or staff advisors for course and degree planning purposes.  Undeclared students are advised by the Advising, Career, and Exploratory Studies Center (ACES). DSS assists with academic advising by collaborating in the advising process. Issues such as classroom accessibility, choice of instructors, and course content (reading and writing demands, etc.) are particular concerns for DSS students. As you work through the advising process, also consult with your DSS coordinator to supplement the information you need to make course and degree planning decisions.
