Students in the COA can meet with either an advisor, which refers to a staff member in the Office of Student Services, or a faculty advisor, which refers to a faculty member in their respective academic program.

Advisors are staff members in the Office of Student Services that assist students with changing their majors and concentrations, adding or dropping minors, understanding college and university policy and procedure, submitting college and university appeals, complete graduation checkouts, and many other functions. To schedule an appointment with one of our advisors, Brandon or Jennie, please do so via the Navigate app.

Faculty advisors are faculty members that assist students in understanding more about their academic programs, including opportunities available to them during and after their time at LSU. Faculty advisers also assist students with course advising throughout their time at LSU. To see a full list of faculty advisors, view our faculty advisor page. You can schedule an appointment with your faculty advisor via the Navigate app or by emailing them directly.
