Advising Linkage Initiatives
The main objective is to provide the Undergraduate Program Directors, faculty and appropriate staff professionals direct access to an academic advisor in the Academic & Transfer Advising Services office to whom they can refer to clarify academic policies and procedures, academic concerns, and assist with academic situations outside the purview of the academic department. New faculty members are encouraged to contact the UPD in their department to address any immediate concerns. To learn more about the Advising Linkage Program, please click on the links below:
