What We Do

University Advising and Exploratory Studies supports students in transition at the university. Our largest program is Exploratory Studies, where new first-year students enter the university exploring major and career options and then matriculate into a major. The Inter-College Transfer (ICT) program supports students who are exploring different majors outside their current college. Our Change of Major Drop-in Advising assists students who are exploring a change of major. We also supports transitioning international and transfer students who may need additional support beyond their assigned advisor on campus. Lastly, University Advising and Exploratory Studies supports the advising community on campus by providing campus-wide professional development opportunities and recognition.
