Career & Major Advising

We offer both career advising and advising for students to help choose a major.  See below for more information on both.

Career Advising

If you need some help deciding on a career path or have other career-related questions, our staff is here to guide you. 

Career advising can help you take that next step, or that next leap, forward.  We can help in many ways, offering an invaluable outside perspective.

Advising is available by appointment and on select walk-in days.
