Your faculty advisor will assist you with general advice or help.

If you seek help during a particular course, tutoring is available and the faculty wishes to work with you individually as well. The Geosciences Help room will have a regular schedule of tutoring help on a drop-in basis. 

If you are considering whether to pursue further studies in Geosciences, we get you started and assist along the way. 

Check with any professor or staff member to find out who may be able to advise you best, but some important resource people are listed below.
