This Smeal Advising Center handles advising for Smeal students both prior to entrance to major and once a student develops a major within Smeal. This is the appropriate place to seek information on academic and degree requirements, recommendation letters, financial aid, and course transfer procedures. All students accepted into a major should consult with their major adviser to plan each semester and to see how education abroad program course work can be used to satisfy degree requirements.
