Never underestimate the value of good advice. At TU, we take this idea to heart. Our advisers help you choose your major, plan a program of study, improve your study skills, connect with internships, integrate research into your studies, get into graduate school, even find a career.
Academic Advising Center
The Academic Advising Center coordinates advising at Towson University and manages the First-Year Experience (FYE) program. You’ll be assigned a First-Year Experience (FYE) adviser who will guide you through course selection, ensure that you have successfully fulfilled requirements, and point you in the right direction for academic opportunities. After you select a major, you’ll be paired with an adviser within your own field of study who will guide through your major program.
