Current Students

As a student in the College of the Environment and Life Sciences (CELS), you have a variety of resources available to you. For a majority of your academic issues or concerns, you may need to visit the CELS Office of Academic & Student Affairs located in CBLS building. This office handles academic issues related to graduation, academic advising, prior approval for off-campus study, transfer credits, and other college and university procedures. Please take a moment to review our website and the online resources. This may save you a trip to the Center for Biotechnology and Life Sciences.

If you are a CELS student who is still in University College (that is, you have yet to earn 30 credits with a GPA above 2.0), please visit their website for academic advising and other resources.
