Foundation Student Advising

Advising during the Foundation year is provided by an assigned faculty advisor, who is your Elements of Visual Thinking instructor. You therefore have weekly contact with an advisor, allowing for easy and regular communication of important information.

Foundation faculty advisors serve as a source for general questions and concerns about coursework, academic programs, campus life, and other issues. This advising is supplemented by the Foundation Academic Advisor who is a professional staff advisor who is in close contact with other campus resources, and is dedicated to working with first-year students on a broad range of student life and academic matters. The Foundation Academic Advisor assists students with registration and scheduling, transfer credit and advanced placement, understanding Foundation requirements and degree programs.

The Foundation Academic Advisor’s office is located in the Foundation Department, Main 260, for quick and comfortable access. Feel free to stop by! Visit Foundation online for more information about the Foundation Department.
