Academic advising is available to guide students through their academic careers, to ensure that requirements for the major are fulfilled, and opportunities for achievement are met. To be successful in the Computer Animation and Game Development Program (CAGD) we encourage you to meet with your program advisor, Professor Clarke Steinback Ph.D.
To move forward into a career in the computer animation and game development industries a successful academic experience with objectives and goals that are discussed and achieved is a crucial step. Advising is not required during the Fall semester but is encouraged in order to follow a plan to maintain these goals and objectives and to complete them in a cohesive manner.
To receive advising regarding General Education requirements please visit Academic Advising.
What is mandatory advising?
Mandatory advising takes place each academic year in the Spring Semester. Advising must be accomplished prior to the Fall registration deadline or a hold will be placed on the student's account and registration will be impossible until the mandatory advising requirement has been met.
