Program Advisors

We encourage you to meet with your program advisor at least twice a year. We can answer many of your questions about Social and Decision Sciences programs. Your program advisor is the best person to contact for questions about program and course content, how courses fit into the program, and academic advising.

Prior to meeting with your advisor for the first time, please fill out the Advisee Information Form. Our experience shows that it takes about 10 minutes to complete. This information will be available to your advisor.
