Developmental Advising Program

Faculty Mentors


All Biology and Microbiology majors have been assigned to a Faculty Mentor. Your Mentor is a member of the Biology Department who will assist you with developing and implementing your career plans.

If you are a freshman, a new transfer student, or have recently declared Biology or Microbiology as your major, you are considered a new major. New majors will meet with their Faculty mentor in each of their first 2 semesters in the Biology Department. You must meet with your Faculty Mentor and the Biology Department Advising Center before you can register for classes for the next semester.

If you are a sophomore, junior, or senior, you will meet with your Faculty Mentor once in each academic year. A registration hold will be placed on your student record in the fall of each year. You must meet with your Faculty Mentor and the Biology Department Advising Center within the previous 12 months in order to release the hold and be able to register for the spring semester.
