Advising & Tutoring

Student advising, tutoring, and programming will continue during Winter Term through virtual platforms. 

The Native American Program is dedicated to the support of student academic success and well-being through a combination of advising, tutoring, and workshops. 

Student Advising

Duing 21S, advising meetings will be virtual or over telephone. Students can schedule advising meetings to discuss academic concerns or personal matters that affect their well-being. We connect students with the appropriate campus resources and offices while also guiding students through the process to ensure that they are supported and that their concerns are addressed. 

Schedule an advising appointment:
