Counselors are located in BE 3166 and are currently assigned to academic divisions or student populations. While the following list is a primary resource to locate the counselor trained for your program and needs, you are free to work with any counselor on our staff.

Counselors are available for students who are:

  • program ready, or
  • on academic probation, or
  • new to college and have questions about what academic and/or life direction to take, or
