Undergraduate Student Services

You’re about to do great things, and we’re here to help you.

The Schar School Undergraduate Advising has one thing in mind: your success. That’s not just for our majors, either. If you walk through that door we will do our best to give you the tools you need to succeed. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll send you to someone who does. If they can’t help you, we’ll find someone who will.

College is not a hole to be punched or a box to be checked. It’s a complex place that requires effort and insight to master. The advising staff at the Schar School is here to help you navigate the challenges and come out on top. You might stumble, and that’s okay. We’re here for a marathon, not a sprint. Sometimes showing how you recover from a setback is more valuable than never having one in the first place.
