Advising

Interested in Declaring PitE? Attend an Information SessionStudents must first attend an information session

Information sessions are group advising meetings where students learn about the environment major or minor, ask questions, and declare a major or minor with an advisor. These sessions are generally held twice a month each term. Students must attend an information session before meeting with a concentration or faculty advisor. Students should meet with a peer advisor during peer advisor walk-in hours if they are not able to attend an information session.  All information sessions are held down the hall from the PitE Office in room 1160 USB

PitE will host a monthly information session through the summer. 

**Please visit this page in mid-September for the schedule of  fall term information sessions.**
