Who is My Assigned Advisor?

All Southern students have a designated Academic Advisor.

First-year students (freshmen) in your first semester: You are advised by your INQ 101 instructor during your first semester only. This advisor will help you navigate your first semester at Southern and meet with you to discuss courses for your second semester.

Continuing or new transfer students with a declared major: You are advised by an assigned faculty or staff member within your academic department. This advisor is your go-to person for all things within your major, including course registration. Check your Degree Evaluation to see who your advisor is.

If you are unable to get in touch with your advisor, please contact the Department Chair of your major department.

Continuing or new transfer students without a declared major: You are advised by the Exploratory AAC Advisor or the AAC Advisor aligned with your area of interest. This advisor will support you through your major exploration process and help you choose the appropriate courses to keep you on track to earn your degree. Check your Degree Evaluation to see who your advisor is.
 

ALL STUDENTS: In addition to the support you'll receive from your assigned advisor,  the Department of Academic Advising offers a full range of services through our Academic Advising Centers (AACs), including but not limited to support for students who are experiencing challenges that are impacting their academic success, struggling in current major(s) and/or exploring majors, and who need help navigating University curriculum, policy and/or procedure.
