The CFA Academic Advisement Center for Student Success has created this Frequently Asked Questions resource to address common questions you may have as a student in the College of Communication and Fine Arts. Please refer to the list on the left to access the various subsets of questions.

Please note that your orientation advisor will be updated to a faculty member in your major department once the semester begins. You can find your faculty advisor's name in PROWL listed in your "Check Your Registration Status" display on the Student Services: Registration menu, as well as at the top of your DegreeWorks Report.
