Academics & Programs


Liberal arts requirements vary within the individual degree programs on campus. Therefore, it is important that students carefully plan their liberal arts program to meet their specific degree requirements. Academic advisors are available daily to provide assistance in planning and selecting appropriate liberal arts courses. Through this office, the college provides liberal arts advising and audits for each degree program to help students maintain records of progress toward their degree.

To schedule an advising appointment, please e-mail an advisor or call 475-2444.
