The Office of Provisional Programs serves students with diverse levels of academic preparation and abilities by utilizing specialized programs and support services to ensure academic success combined with adequate and appropriate academic advising.

The academic adviser for each student is the program coordinator who assists in the progressive planning and continued focus on their chosen academic program.

Many students enter the University having decided on a major and/or program of study. There are, however, those students who have not decided on a major. This group of students is admitted as undecided and is assisted by this office in being assigned to an academic adviser within the College of Liberal Arts. Once a student is enrolled and would like to change her/his major, the student would need to visit the department of the new major. The administrative assistant of the new major will assign an adviser specific to the new major. The Office of Provisional Programs is located in Room 112 of the Stokes Administration Building.
