CS Advising

Academic advising is a collaborative process in planning a student’s program by working on prerequisites, electives, and course scheduling. All new undergraduate students are required to meet their advisor within their first two terms of enrollment at PSU. Students can set up an appointment to fulfill this mandatory advising requirement by calling 503-725-4631 or schedule directly online. Students are assigned to an advisor based on the last two digits of their student ID number.
