Advising and Registration
We are here to help! Academic advising and registration assistance are two of the main services offered by the Center for Career and Academic Planning.
Find Your Advisor on FisherLink
To find the name, contact information, and meeting availability of your faculty advisor, log into FisherLink and select "Success Network." Faculty advisors are only available to students who have declared a major. Freshmen and undeclared students will be assigned an advisor through the Center for Career and Academic Planning (CCAP).
To reach a CCAP advisor, log into FisherLink and select "Services."
Declare or Change a Major/Minor
Complete an Academic Program Change Request and then check your email for notifications of changes. This form also allows you to change your academic advisor.
