What to Expect When You Meet with your Advisor

One week before orientation, you will receive an email with important information to review prior to your orientation program.

During orientation you will meet with an advisor and a small group of other new students to discuss degree requirements, co-curricular opportunities, transfer credits (if applicable) and register for first semester courses.

Beyond orientation, ARHU students are paired with at least two advisors – a departmental advisor who advises on requirements for the major and a college advisor who advises on general education and college requirements outside the major.
