Academic Advising

Current and prospective CBE students are encouraged to meet with our academic advisers. Each department has a dedicated team available to discuss:

  • Admissions qualifications, deadlines, academic planning, and dual degree programs
  • Prerequisite and transfer credits
  • Financial aid, scholarships, special circumstances, college and university resources, and graduation
  • Study abroad, internship and career planning
  • Exploring academic interests and developing a sense of purpose through your education

Adviser Contacts and Availability

Advisers keep office hours in their individual departments and are happy to schedule individual appointments. Prior to reaching out to an adviser, we encourage students to explore our departments, degree programs, and applications requirements and prepare questions before your appointment.
