Assigning First-Year Students and Sophomores to an Adviser

The Director of Advising is responsible for assigning first-year and sophomore students to a liberal arts adviser. Whenever possible, first-year students are assigned a faculty adviser that they have a class with their first term at Carleton and continue that relationship until they declare a major during spring term of their sophomore year. Sometimes first-year and sophomore students are reassigned due to faculty leaves and resignations, but whenever possible, are returned to their original adviser when faculty return from leave.
