Undergraduate Advising

The undergraduate advising program in chemistry and biochemistry is designed to help our students plan their undergraduate training and to look forward to a career in chemistry, biochemistry, or a related field. A faculty advisor assists in developing a program of study from the beginning course to graduation, with modifications whenever necessary or desirable.

In addition, the department offers drop-in advising in our Peer Advising Center.  Trained, upper-class chemistry and biochemistry majors are available as peer advisors to help with questions regarding degree requirements, course plans, transfer credits or any advising issue.

In order for advising to be effective, students should plan on meeting with an advisor as soon as an interest is declared in chemistry or biochemistry and on a regular basis thereafter, especially at the start of their senior year.

Transfer students are encouraged to meet with a faculty advisor or schedule a prospective student visit before enrolling.
