Staff Advising Information + Hours

Staff advisors in the Research and Academic Services Office (RAS) are there to guide you in selecting your courses to fulfill your Social Science and Humanities requirements or in choosing Free Elective courses. They can also help you explore other academic options such as study abroad, dual degrees, minors, and submatriculation opportunities in graduate programs across the University. If you find yourself in some academic trouble, need a referral for academic support, or are having some personal problems, RAS Staff Advisors are available to assist you in whatever way they can.
