How does advising work?

How does advising work?

  1. Review your Degree Progress Report
  2. Come up with a tentative schedule
  3. Email it to your advisor; Zoom meetings may be set on request

Who is my advisor?

Advisors are assigned by your option/last name. For Fall 2022, advisors are:

News

A–E =  Aaron Quinn
F-M =  Susan Wiesinger

Public Relations

A–L =  Stephen Caldes
M-R=  Janell Bauer

Janell Bauer is available for grad checks, transfer advising, substitution requests, etc. 

Why mandatory advising?

J&PR advisors are with you every step of the way and we're motivated to help you succeed.

Advising helps you figure out the best path through the program, including selection of courses that double count, minor selection and progress toward degree.

J&PR has mandatory advising, which means majors must see a J&PR faculty advisor every semester before they can register for classes. No advising? No registration.
