Speak with an Academic Advisor
Connect with an academic advisor when you have general questions about planning your program, degree requirements, or how to make the most of your LFS academic and non-academic experience. Also, if you are experiencing a personal challenge that is impacting your academics or you don’t know where else to turn, we provide confidential advising and connect you with appropriate resources. Throughout your degree, we’re all here to help.
