Meet the Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising Center Staff

In addition to the director and assistant directors, the Academic Advising Center has a dedicated staff of 26 full-time professional academic advisors from a broad range of backgrounds. We are also fortunate to have two administrative staff members, a graduate student intern, and our team of Peer Advisors, all of whom help ensure that everything runs smoothly so that we can best serve our students.

PLEASE NOTE: All academic advising appointments are currently being conducted on a remote basis, and in-person appointments are not available until further notice. 

As an incoming student in the Dietrich School, you are assigned an academic advisor within the Academic Advising Center. Once you have officially declared your Dietrich School major, or once you have been accepted into a different undergraduate school within the University, you will transition to a different academic advisor in your chosen program.
