Nursing and Health Sciences advising

Academic Advising in the College of Nursing & Health Sciences

All programs in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS) are supported by the expertise of faculty and professional advisors who help students plan their degree and navigate institutional processes. Upon acceptance to the college, students are assigned an advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to work with advisors to understand degree requirements and develop plans to achieve their educational and vocational goals.

Please refer to the Advising Syllabus for more information about our advising process.

How to contact an academic advisor

For students admitted to a CNHS program, contact information for your academic advisor is listed in two places, on your My.Metro Student Dashboard ( and on your degree audit report (DARS).  Email if you do not have access to your academic advisor’s contact information.  Reach out to your advisor as needed.
