Provide accurate, timely advising to undergraduate majors by faculty familiar with their chosen major and career goals.
New faculty members are assigned freshman students, so they will maintain an advising relationship through the student's academic years. Experienced faculty members are assigned transfer student and other students to balance the advising load. all assignments are made by the student records secretary in the Biology Department. Students who ask to be advised by a particular faculty member are assigned to that faculty member whenever possible.
Recent Changes and Future Plans

To Improve Accessibility of Advisors
We do not have enough information to make changes!
