GVSU has multiple layers of advising resources for your use.  Once you have declared a major you will be assigned a faculty advisor, or you may request a particular faculty advisor (see advising FAQs).  Your faculty advisor will have office hours for you to drop by, but it is always best to schedule an appointment in advance.  Your faculty advisor can assist you understand and meet course requirements, discuss research, internships, graduate school, and career options with you.  It would be advisable to meet with your faculty advisor at least once per year, more as is needed.

You can use myPath to track your progress towards graduation.  Many faculty advisors will make use of it during advising.
