Advising and Student Services
Students are advised either in the College of Sciences and Mathematics’ Academic Advising and Student Services Center or by their assigned faculty advisor. In consultation with their advisor, students select courses each semester that enable them to complete all requirements for their academic major, minor or concentration, as well as all other requirements for the baccalaureate degree. All students in the College of Sciences and Mathematics have an advising hold every semester that can be cleared only by the advisor following the advising session. After completing 30 hours of coursework, students must file a degree plan with assistance from the Academic Advising and Student Services Center, located in Room 127 of the Miller Science Building.
Double dipping is using the same course to fulfill two different requirements in a degree plan. The College of Sciences and Mathematics does not allow more than nine hours of double dipping across degree plans. Double dipping beyond nine hours requires chair and dean approval. Departments are not required to allow double dipping in a degree plan.
The College of Sciences and Mathematics and its academic units annually award numerous scholarships to students majoring in the college. These scholarships are available to undergraduates, including incoming freshmen, transfer students and graduate students. Scholarships are awarded based on academic excellence and/or financial need. Applications are due by Feb. 1 and are accessible online through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website. More specific information about scholarships is available by referencing department websites or other sections of this bulletin. Information about additional sources of financial aid also is available from the Office of Student Financial Assistance.

Students must have at least a C average to change their major to one in the College of Sciences and Mathematics.
Procedures for Reinstatement of Students on Suspension
The College of Sciences and Mathematics adheres to Policy 6.4 - Academic Probation, Suspension, and Reinstatement for Undergraduates, which is explained on the Academic Programs and Policies page. Students whose academic performance does not meet the minimum standard will be contacted by the Academic Advising and Student Services Center.
