Faculty Advisors

New freshmen and transfer students coming in at the freshman and sophomore levels should see Ms. Stepheca Sawyer, Retention Coordinator, for advisement.  Ms. Sawyer is located in the Graves School of Business, room 407.  She can be reached on extension 3855.

Sophomores should also see Ms. Sawyer in room 407 for advisement.

Juniors and Seniors should seek advisement from departmental advisors.  Juniors and seniors are assigned to departmental faculty advisors based on last name as indicated in the schedule below. 

Transfer students coming in at the junior or senior level should see the Chairperson for advisement.  Freshmen and sophomore transfer students should see Ms. Sawyer in room 407.

Students that have completed 80 or more credits at the end of the spring semester will receive a Student Status Summary by Morgan email during the following summer in late July or early August. This should help you determine if you can graduate by the following December or May. Please review the Student Status Summary  with the Chairperson before you register for the last semester to make sure you sign up for all classes required for graduation. If you have completed 80 credits by the spring semester and you do not receive the Student Status Summary by email by Augst 15, you should stop by the department to have one completed.

Any  student not able to see the assigned adviser for any reason may see any other faculty member in that major.  Such students may also choose to see the Chairperson for advisement.
