Please make sure to meet with your advisor atleast once a semester, more if necessary. It is especially important to discuss your course plans with your advisor before registration to make sure you are on track for completing all degree requirements.

  • general inquiries about the program

  • urgent matters when the primary advisor is out of the office with primary advisor ccd


Please do not reply to this email. If you have questions, please email your advisor.

Have a great semester!
