Advisers are faculty or staff who will help you navigate through Marquette. Advisers are assigned to you by the college/school/program in which you are enrolled. If you switch major(s) or college, you will also be assigned a new adviser.
If you enroll as an undecided major, you are still assigned an adviser. This adviser will be versed in all majors and areas of study and can help you identify an academic plan that best suits you. Once you declare your major(s), you will be assigned a faculty adviser in the department of your interest.
To access information about your adviser(s), you must log in to CheckMarq and access the main Student Center page. For more information on how to find out who your adviser is, visit marquette.edu/mucentral/registrar/how_adviser.shtml.
