Students should schedule an appointment with a peer adviser during the second and third months of each semester by signing up outside of 453 College of Professional Studies.
Physical Education majors
Students majoring in physical education will be advised by a professional academic adviser in the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center until admitted to the Professional Education Program. Once admitted, students will be assigned to a faculty adviser.
Secondary and K-12 Education majors
Students seeking a secondary or K-12 teaching license pursue a major in the subject area they wish to teach. The department of the major will assign an academic adviser. Students are required to see their major academic adviser every semester.
