Academic Advisors

Islander Transition Center

Students who have declared a major are assigned a specific advisor according to which college their major falls under. Undeclared or exploratory students are advised through the Islander Transition Center (ITC). Please see below to determine who your academic advisor is. Note that some colleges advise their students according to their major, while others advise their students by the alphabetical order of their last name.
