Geography and Environmental Studies Department

Academic Advising

The Geography and Environmental Studies Department has mandatory advising for all department students each semester.

An email will be sent instructing students majoring in Geography to meet with an advisor. Prepare a list of courses that you are planning to take in the next semester and bring it with you to this meeting.

Regularly check your Degree Progress Report (DPR) in your Student Center.
