Advising is a central responsibility of all faculty members at Harvey Mudd College. Each of us guides students through our major or departmental requirements, serves as academic advisors to students in their first two years, and are called upon to answer questions about the broad set of general college academic regulations.
This handbook offers a quick reference for questions commonly asked by students and provides basic information about the core program, graduation requirements, and advising expectations. The handbook can provide a convenient complement to collegial sources of information about advising including the Department Chairs, the Academic Affairs Committee, the Dean of Faculty, the Core Curriculum Director, and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The handbook is revised annually – please let your departmental Academic Affairs Committee member know of any desirable additions or corrections.
