Changing your Advisor

Changing Advisor

Advisors guide you throughout your academic career, and help you find resources related to your major and potential career interests. Find an advisor you're comfortable working with. Schedule regular advising appointments.

Generally, you would only seek to change advisors for the following reasons:

  • You're changing majors and need an advisor in your new major.

  • There's an advisor in your major whose interests are more closely aligned with your professional and academic interests.

  • You have simply found a different advisor that's a better match, for personal reasons.

To change your advisor

Make an appointment to see the professional Academic Advisor for your major. This advisor can help you identify a new faculty advisor.
