How to Get Advised

The College of Performing and Visual Arts has a dual advising model. Faculty and Academic Advisors collaborate to ensure students are on track to graduate and flourish in their field. If you have a general question about registration, course offerings, or four-year plans, feel free to contact us in the PVA Advising Center. If you want to discuss career questions or chat about what degree fits your dreams and aspirations, you can reach out to your Faculty Advisor directly or come to us to start the conversation. We look forward to helping you aspire towards a robust performance or visual arts career!
