Each student is assigned a nutritional sciences advisor when declaring a major in
our department. All full-time faculty participate in advising, and all majors are
required to sign up for a 30-minute advising session each semester during the official
advising/enrollment periods. The sequence of courses and curricula have tight schedules,
and students may not complete their degree on time if they do not have mentorship/advice
from the faculty.
Students meet with their advisor to discuss progress toward degree completion, course load for the next semester, possible summer school, career advice, etc. In addition, students are welcome to contact their advisor at any time during the semester to seek guidance about any questions or concerns.
