Academic Advising

The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) Office of Student Services provides academic assistance, career guidance and support, and student life engagement opportunities to students in all SC&I academic programs.

Current and prospective students are encouraged to seek out advising throughout their academic career. SC&I Student Services staff can provide basic information about academic programs, admissions, degree requirements, and career planning. Students can also speak with Student Services staff when they need support dealing with nonacademic circumstances that affect their academics. Faculty in each degree program can also offer advising on matching course selection with intellectual interests and career goals.

Basic academic program information is provided on the school's website. To address more complex questions, students are encouraged to schedule appointments with the director for the major, other department faculty, or student services advisers in the school. All courses are not offered every semester, and students are strongly encouraged to check course prerequisites carefully and formulate a plan of study that will enable them to develop a coherent area of concentration in the major that meets their career goals while taking into account course availability. Students must also seek advising through their four-year school regarding appropriate minors, double majors, and school requirements in concert with a SC&I major.

Contact Information

The Office of Student Services is in Room 214 of the main School of Communication and Information Building. Prospective and current students with inquiries or wishing to schedule an appointment can call 848-932-7550 or email
