Your major advisor answered a few questions to assist you with your first semester courses — see below.

General Information

When should I first meet with my major department? We would suggest for freshman to meet with our Academic Counselors at the Student Resource Center (SRC) in HSS 254 and for transfer students to meet with a faculty advisor as soon as possible; at the beginning of each semester.
How will I be assigned to a major advisor and how do I contact them? Students declared as Interior Design majors are assigned alphabetically to an advisor in their area.  The best method of contact is to email to request an appointment or physically sign up for an appointment outside of the faculty office. 
Where can I find information about major advising? On our department website, under the "Advising" link on the Student Resources tab.
Does this major require any pre-work from me before I attend orientation or register for classes?

Before registering for classes, students should consult with an advisor, the SRC program handout, and/or roadmap, and follow the recommended course sequences.  It is important to note that the Interior Design program includes prerequisite courses which must be taken prior to registering in certain classes.  Freshman we ask to meet with our Academic Counselors at the Student Resource Center (SRC) in HSS 254 as they are quite knowledgeable regarding program prerequisites/requirements.

What should I do if my major core and/or prequisite courses are full? If a course is full, the student should attend the first several days of the class as drops and adds will occur.
