Advising-Department of Biological Sciences - Carnegie Mellon University


Academic advising can be one of the most important elements in undergraduate success. In our department, each student is mentored and advised by our faculty in a variety of ways.


All undergraduate Biological Sciences students may meet with the primary departmental academic advisor, Becki Campanaro, Ph.D.
* It is suggested that students meet with their advisor frequently, but at least once a semester prior to registration.

  • develop an individualized curricular plan,
