Policies and Forms
In addition to University regulations, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has academic policies on internships, scholastic probation, academic misconduct, and more. View the Center's academic policies page.
Students can access forms for many academic functions, such declaring a major and placing a class on pass/fail, on the CLAS Academic Services Center's website.
Academic advisors are staff or faculty members selected by a department to guide students through their major requirements. In most cases, students are assigned an academic advisor when they declare a major. Learn more about the CLAS undergraduate advising process and expectations for advisors and students.
