Office for Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate resources and information

Our office is here to support future and current Eberly College of Science undergraduate students navigate admission, pre-major status in the college, entrance into one of our many majors or minors, and finally to celebrate with graduation and commencement. We connect students with advisors, provide information on policies and procedures, and sponsor programs and student organizations meant to support all of our undergraduate students. Our goal is to provide all life, physical, and mathematical sciences students with access to science engagement experiences and to ensure that all our students have the tools they need to succeed in the college.

Undergraduate policies and procedures

Here are the most common University and College policies students contact our office about for more information.

A word from Mary Beth Williams

As a proud faculty member in the college, I enjoy my role helping students find their best path through the college to graduation and beyond. We have a great team of faculty and staff in Ritenour Building who share the common goal of helping students find success in achieving their goals. We welcome all students in the college to make use of the student collaborative center in the lower level of Ritenour that was designed and built for you.
