Office of the Dean of Studies

The Office of the Dean of Studies supports students and faculty members in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music. The primary goal of the Office of the Dean of Studies is to help students succeed in their college careers and complete their degree programs in a timely way. More specifically, the office coordinates academic advising in the College of Arts and Sciences, advises students, and helps faculty members with advising and academic policy concerns. This office advises students concerning leaves of absence (whether academic, medical, or personal) and other status issues, such as finishing away and withdrawing from the college.
