Student Resources


Criminal Justice and Criminology majors must meet with an academic advisor before registering each semester.

To find out who your assigned advisor is, check your WINGS account.

Advising Policies

  • Students are responsible for keeping track of their progress toward their degree.
  • Students are responsible for making sure to complete their graduation clearance packet three semesters before they plan to graduate.
  • Students should arrive at their meeting with their advisor prepared. They should draft a list of preferred and alternate courses for the next semester. Also, they should come prepared to ask questions about course selection, preparation for graduation, and career planning.
