Academic Advising

The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication provides academic advising on a scheduled appointment basis Monday through Friday. Walk-in advising hours will be available during critical registration periods at the beginning of each semester. Dates and times for walk-in advising will be announced on the website when scheduled.

Our academic advisors help students successfully transition to the university and make progress towards their educational goals and graduation. Communication majors are encouraged to meet with an advisor at least once a year.
