Advising

College advising is provided by the CHSS Student Resource Center and focuses on GE and University requirements. 

The Student Resource Center (SRC) is designed to help students in the development of an educational plan that is compatible with their academic and life goals. The SRC works in collaboration with other university resources including major departments and major advisors to provide additional support for the students within the College of Health & Social Sciences.
