You are assigned to the HPHD Advising Center when you declare a major in
dietetics, health promotion/wellness or family & consumer sciences. You can declare an
HPHD major at any time, provided you meet department GPA requirements.
You must declare your major to be assigned to the HPHD Advising Center. If you
would like to declare a major in dietetics, health promotion/wellness or family & consumer sciences, you need to make an appointment with the HPHD Advising
Coordinator, Toni Sage. To make an appointment, stop by CPS 216 and sign-up
for an appointment that works with your schedule. The sign-up schedule is
located on the counter in CPS 216.
You will advise through the HPHD Advising Center until you are assigned to a
faculty adviser. Dietetic students are assigned to a faculty adviser once they
successfully complete Chemistry 220; health promotion/wellness majors are assigned to a
faculty adviser once they complete the application process and are fully
accepted to the major, typically this occurs during second semester sophomore
year; family & consumer science majors are assigned to a faculty adviser upon
acceptance to the School of Education (teach ed option), or first semester
junior year (FLE option).
HPHD students are assigned one adviser. If you have an additional major or a
minor outside HPHD, you will be advised by an adviser in that
major or minor.
Advising occurs at least once each semester. Before students can
register for classes, they are required to have met with their adviser.
