​A note from your Academic Advisor: Amanda Wilson

I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you better while we plan your courses for this fall semester.

Once you have completed Module One of PUR 101, you will receive an email to schedule a one-on-one virtual meeting with me, via Zoom. Advising meetings will take place during the month of June. During this meeting, we will discuss any questions you may have about the program and complete your fall course registration. This meeting is designed for just you, the student, and myself.


A few things you need to do NOW before your advising appointment:

  • Review this Advising Letter and send the information requested
  • Take your ALEKS placement exam
  • Complete the Student Information Form in your PUR 101 course
