Undergraduates majoring in Chemistry have two sources of formal advising. The first is The College of Arts and Sciences Academic Advising Program, located in the Steele Building, where students should go to verify overall graduation requirements, double major declarations or declaration of minor, course transfers, and to apply for graduation.
The second source of advising is in the Department of Chemistry where Dr. Todd Austell and Dr. Domenic Tiani have been assigned as faculty advisors to all juniors and seniors. Dr. Austell and Dr. Tiani will assist students with questions concerning the curriculum, such as course requirements, choice of elective courses, and the appropriate order for taking courses, career opportunities in chemistry and related fields, and how to apply to graduate schools. Dr. Austell has office hours in his office, which is in Kenan Laboratories, room 142, during the semester.
Another very useful resource for our students is the Chemistry Student Services Office, located in Kenan Laboratories, room 140. As the first line of contact for advising and counseling students regarding academic procedures such as undergraduate research, Honors in Chemistry, degree requirements, pre- or corequisite information, awards/scholarships, pre-registration or registration, drop/add forms, etc., our Student Service staff members will be happy to be of help.
During March and October, before the weekends when seniors and juniors are scheduled to pre-register, appointment sheets are posted in Kenan Laboratories, room 140, for sign-up. Announcement of the advising days will be listed on the appropriate listserv.
Bring your blue student worksheet listing the courses you plan on taking. These worksheets are available in Kenan Laboratories, room 140. During your advising appointment, one copy of your worksheet will be given to you for telephone or web pre-registration.
