Advising Appointments

All Integrated Studies and Exploratory Studies academic advising appointments for currently enrolled undergraduate students are scheduled through Navigate Student.

Exploratory Studies

Exploratory Studies is committed to your success. 

Your decision matters. It’s your future, so you get to decide how to get there. But it’s ok to get a little help along the way. Your Exploratory Studies team recognizes that choices and questions are many as you make these important life decisions, and the need for information and clarity is great. We’re here to help!  

Exploratory Studies is a short-term preparatory major that will give you time to ponder your interests, consider your options, make confident, informed career decisions, and complete your prerequisite preparation for the major of your choice. Exploratory Studies intentionally integrates academic support with career counseling. We give you time and space within a structure of support, knowledge, and forward momentum.
