All freshmen are advised at the Gateway Student Success Center. Once you are a sophomore, you will be assigned a faculty advisor from your specific CAL department. If your faculty advisor is not available and you need immediate assistance, contact one of the Dean’s Office advisors.
The CAL academic advisors will help you shape your education and your future. We help you:
- complete graduation paperwork;
- plan your job search;
- find internships and employment opportunities;
- develop a winning resume.
You can find us in the Dean’s Office (Riles (building 15), room 200) or contact us by phone 928-523-8632.
