First Year Advising

First-year students are assigned First Year advisors who teach the Core Curriculum in the First Year program.

This unique advising structure is designed to provide students with tools for navigating their academic paths in their first year specifically.

In addition to First Year advisors, first-year students are supported by the First Year specialist and assistant director of Academic Advising, who are available to meet with students during regular office hours.

Add/Drop Extended Office Hours

First Year advisors are available to meet with any first-year student during the online Add/Drop period, August 28 to September 7, and the week following. 

Drop-in hours are held in the First Year Advising Office on the Oakland campus in Irwin Student Center, Room 211.
