Advising

Welcome to the online home for Undergraduate Academic Advising in the Sam Fox School!

 
As a Sam Fox student, you will work with two types of academic advisors. Your Four-Year Advisor  will serve as a primary point of contact for academic support from the time you first enroll until commencement. In addition to enrolling you in classes during the summer prior to your first semester and authorizing you to register your first year, your Four-Year Advisor will help you choose a major, understand the logic of the curriculum, navigate your degree requirements, and plan for second major and minor programs.

Beginning your sophomore year you will receive a Major Advisor who will offer expertise, guidance, and mentorship within your major. Your Major Advisor will help you select courses in your major, stay on track with your degree requirements, and highlight opportunities within the major. You are required to meet with your Major Advisor each semester in order to be authorized to register.
