The Health and Human Development Advising office is a friendly welcoming resource for HHD students.Knowledgeable advisors provide timely, detailed information to students and work with them to develop an appropriate plan of study.  We clarify and assist in the understanding of curriculum, graduation requirements, and university policies and procedures, and also participate in new student recruitment and orientation.
Students majoring in Community Health, Early Childhood Education & Child Services, Family & Consumer Sciences (Teaching and Nonteaching options), Health & Human Performance (Exercise Science and Kinesiology options), and Health Enhancement K-12, as well as freshmen in Food and Nutrition (Dietetics and Nutrition Science options) meet with the HHD Advising Office every semester.  Sustainable Foods & Bioenergy Systems students are advised by Mary Stein, and Food & Nutrition sophomores, juniors, and seniors are advised by Melody Anacker.

HHD majors focus on well-being in a variety of ways.  There are seven majors and ten options ranging from majors more focused on math and science to those more focused on the social sciences.  Check out the links to the right for more information!

Advising Recommendations

  • Sequencing of classes is important; overlapping core with required classes saves time and money.
  • Taking random classes that work in one's personal schedule will work for a while but, in the long run, those courses will not count toward a degree and there will be financial aid consequences.
  • Check before dropping classes!  The minimum number of credits to be a full-time student is 12.  Dropping below this can be a problem for financial aid, student housing, and athletic eligibility.  Some scholarships may require a higher minimum number of credits as well.
  • Taking advice from friends, even if they're in the same major, is not a good idea.  These friends may be in a different catalog and have different degree requirements.
  • All substitutions must have written approval
