Advising

Students seeking advising in the Computer Science major should contact your assigned advisor. If you are unable to reach your advisor, please contact the Department Chair (see CS Faculty & Staff). Before your advising appointment, please consult the CS Advising Frequently Asked Questions and your Academic Requirements Report in MySSU.

Be aware that the CS Department is not your only advising resource: there are university-level advising resources available to you, and School of Science and Technology advising resources available.
