Freshmen are assigned an advisor at Freshman Registration.
Faculty Advisors to the freshman class are volunteer members of the
faculty who, in addition to the usual responsibilities of course
registration, also meet informally with their advisees throughout
the academic year to discuss items of mutual interest or concern.
The intent of the freshman advising program is to help students
with the critical adjustment necessary for college success.
- Transfer Students are assigned an advisor in their chosen major
field at the time their credits are evaluated. See Transfer
- Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are assigned to an advisor by
the Head of their major department.
The advisor's role
Each student must have a course schedule approved by that
student's advisor before registration each term and may make no
changes in it without the advisor's approval. Mid-Term Reports for
each student are made available to the advisor, which provides an
opportunity to discuss any problems the student may be having.
A student who wishes to be assigned a different advisor should
consult the Department Head. A student who changes majors will be
assigned a new advisor. See Changing Curriculum.
Rose-Hulman's Counseling Services, located
in the Office of the Dean of Students, offers help to students with
