Our commitment

Advising at the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) is an important component of the commitment to a quality undergraduate experience for students. The CLA Advising and Academic Services office is located in 310 Kirby Plaza. 

We work collaboratively with CLA faculty and coordinate many kinds of activities for current and prospective students. Our staff members enjoy working with students and are committed to providing them with accurate, timely and friendly service. New freshmen and new transfer students are assigned to a staff advisor from within this office and are later re-assigned to work with faculty in the discipline of their interest. This design is supported by research of the Intake Model for Academic Advising. CLA Advising helps you with your academic questions from orientation to graduation.
