How do I know who my advisor is?

You are assigned an academic advisor based on your declared major and classification. When you log into SSC campus, you will see your academic advisor's name listed on your dashboard. You can find your advisor through your PAWS account as well.

You can also refer to the following:

If you have earned more than 30 credit hours, including credit hours you may have transferred from another college or university, you will be advised in your major department in Arts and Sciences.
