All degree and certificate students are assigned an advisor to serve as a resource for information gathering, decision making, and program progression. In the MSN Specialty, DNP, and PhD programs, Faculty Advisor assignments will be made according to the student’s program and area of focus. Students will be notified of their advisors prior to orientation. In the MSN (Entry into Nursing) Program, professional academic advisors are assigned after orientation. Students are ultimately responsible for ensuring they are registered on time and for the correct classes.
