Reasons to Visit College of Arts and Sciences Advising

College of Arts & Sciences has a mandatory advising policy which requires all students to meet with an advisor during their first semester. A hold will be placed on your account preventing registration at the end of your first semester if you have not met with an advisor.  Arrangements for advising may be made by contacting (904) 620-2797.
