College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
Office of the Dean
The college has an associate dean of undergraduate academic programs and advising staff who welcome the opportunity to become acquainted and to talk with individual students. They can also help you with academic problems if you are placed on probation or subject to dismissal.
Faculty Advisers/Staff Advisers. You will be assigned a faculty adviser to help you plan a program that corresponds to your individual educational interests. The master advisers coordinate advising within a major. Staff advisers in the department can advise you on courses, specific requirements of majors and career opportunities. You are strongly urged to consult with your faculty adviser or staff adviser each quarter before selecting your courses.
As educational objectives evolve, you may, in consultation with the master adviser for your major, choose a new faculty adviser whose area of expertise corresponds more directly to your specific objectives.
Are you unsure what major you really want to pursue? If so, you may want to register in the Undeclared/Exploratory Program. With the help of staff in the dean's office and the major advisers, you can explore specialized options, develop your decision-making abilities and select the major best suited to your needs. For registration purposes, indicate “Undeclared/Exploratory” on your admissions materials. You must declare a major before you complete 90 units; see Declaration of Major.
