Academic advising in Biochemistry is done by two full-time professional advisors. Students are assigned to an advisor according to the college through which the major is declared. Our advisors work closely with other teams on campus, such as Pre-Health advising, the Honors Program, and more. Advising is not just about course selection — it’s about goals, having an advocate, and getting the most out of college.

Who is my advisor?

Your MyRed Student Center displays your advisor's name and contact information.

When and how should I make an advising appointment?

Schedule an advising appointment directly with your advisor via Student Success Hub. Drop-ins are also welcome. Don't wait until the last minute! Please see your advisor at least once a semester. We are happy to see you more often! Plan to meet with your advisor at least two weeks before priority registration.
