Advising

The Department of Physics and Astronomy Academic Advisors are here to help you achieve your educational goals. Existing and prospective majors/minors may contact the advisor with questions or concerns by phone, e-mail or during office hours.

Students are assigned to academic advisors when they first declare their major or minor. You can look up your advisor in mySSU. If you are a declared major or minor in our department and have not been assigned an advisor yet, please visit the department office to let us know.

For registered students progressing toward a degree, the Academic Requirements Report is a resource that outlines progress toward the degree. Becoming familiar with this tool can help in planning your program. Additionally, the 50-unit GE pattern worksheet can be accessed here.

Please keep in mind that you could have a research advisor that is different from your academic advisor. PeopleSoft only shows the name of your academic advisor.
