Miami University employs both professional academic advisors and faculty advisors to help students achieve their educational goals. Professional advisors work with new students at Orientation and help them to register for their first semester's classes. They also help undecided students register for classes and assist all students in completing academic and Miami Plan petitions. Professional academic advisors can also help students with selecting a major and exploring career options.

Faculty advisors are assigned to students at Miami when they declare a major. If a student changes majors, the faculty advisor assignment will also change. Faculty advisors help students choose classes and concentrations for majors and can assist in finding co-op, internship, and other academic opportunities. They are also excellent resources to discuss after-graduation plans. To find information about faculty advisors in your department, navigate to the specific CLAAS department website and click About in the menu. 

You can use Navigate to schedule an appointment with professional advisors and some faculty advisors, depending on their availability.
