School of Music, Theatre and Dance undergraduate, master and specialist students are encouraged to take advantage of the Academic Advising resources available through the Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA). From orientation to graduation, OASA helps students navigate college life both inside and outside of the classroom, including guidance on the following:
- Term-by-term course plans
- Degree audit checks
- Understanding program requirements
- The evaluation and transfer of outside credits
- Adding a minor or a second degree
- Registration adjustments (add/drop/semester withdrawals)
- University resources (CAPS, Financial Aid, Career Services, etc)
OASA offers a wide range of options to meet with an advisor.
These appointments are ideal for developing long-term plans, selecting courses for future terms, exploring minors, registration assistance, changing or adding a second major, study abroad, and learning about ways to get involved with university organizations.
Walk-In Wednesday Advising (via Zoom)
OASA will offer virtual drop-in advising sessions on Wednesday, November 15, to allow students to connect 1-on-1 with an academic advisor without needing an appointment. Please check this page for more updates and a Zoom link closer to that date.
