Academic Advising

DUGS Advising

The Islander Transition Center has gone through a transformation! Rather than being referred to as the Islander Transition Center (ITC), we now have a team that comprises the Department of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS) Advisors. It is the "Anchor Team".  If you are looking for your Academic Advisor for your major, you can visit here for a list of all advisors or navigate by College Advising Unit below. 

 

College Advising Units

Each College at the University has academic advisors to assist you. For more information, please use the links below:
