All students are assigned a faculty advisor, who will assist them throughout their College career. It is crucial that your student get to know their advisor and feel comfortable talking with them. Academic advising is broken into two sections. Incoming freshmen attending a First Year Seminar (FYS) class will have their instructor as their advisor until they declare a major (done during the last part of the first semester). After the major is declared, students will be assigned an advisor in their major department. Students who do not have to take FYS, transfer students and adult students will be assigned a faculty advisor upon entrance to Thomas More College.
