CSTEM AdvisingAdvising

For student seeking to major in any of the programs offered by the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics appropriate and timely academic advising is of critical importance. Given the interdependence and sequential nature of courses needed for most of the degree programs in the sciences, planning an academic program is no trivial task. Students are strongly encouraged to seek advice from an academic advisor throughout the course of their study at Eastern.  

Depending on the student's level of specialization, three different tiers of advisors are available to assist students:

General Undergraduate Advisors (GUAA)

Freshmen and sophomores who have not yet decided on a particular direction of study may want to seek advising from a general undergraduate advisor from the General Academic Undergraduate Advising Office (GUAA).

Department/Program Advisors

Students who have chosen or declared a major may be assigned an advisor from the department that offers the program. Typically this advisor is a faculty member who teaches courses in that specific program - someone who knows both the academic program and individual courses first hand. This type of advisor is in the best position to give students advice on their choice of elective courses, senior projects and how courses may be tied to specific careers within the discipline.

Students who are ready to declare a major may contact the department chair or program director responsible for the program in order to complete the major declaration process and be assigned an advisor. Some programs are directing new prospective majors to first meet with the appropriate college advisor (see below for contact information).
