Academic Advising


All undergraduate students in the Biology department have an assigned faculty advisor; however the vast majority of your questions can be answered by Síle Ní Scanláin in the Biology Office. Her contact info is as follows:

Prof. Rebecca Dunn, Director of Undergraduate Programs is also available to meet with students and provide academic advising services.

In AGORA you may view your faculty advisor by selecting “My Services,” “Account and Personal Information,” then “Academic Advisor.” Freshmen are assigned advisers through the Academic Advising Center. Biology faculty members serve as advisors for sophomores, juniors and seniors. During the registration period the department will provide open office hours for all of our faculty. Feel free to use this time to learn about their research, ask career questions, or get more information on specific courses.
