Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS)
The Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS), 10 Ingraham Hall (608-265-5460), is a campuswide advising service for undergraduates who are undecided about a major and want to explore the many academic opportunities on campus. CCAS also assists students who are considering changing majors or who have not been admitted to limited-enrollment programs and need to explore other options. CCAS advisors are knowledgeable about all the programs and majors offered by the nine undergraduate schools and colleges on campus. Each year at SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration), approximately one-third of the students in the entering class self-identify as "undecided/exploring" and are assigned to CCAS advisors.
In addition to the main CCAS office in Ingraham Hall, CCAS has residence hall advising offices in Chadbourne Residential College, Sellery Hall, Witte Hall, and the Bradley Learning Community. The Bradley office is available to all students in Lakeshore-area residence halls. During the enrollment period, CCAS offers numerous evening group advising sessions around campus. CCAS also provides career exploration activities to help students make decisions about academic direction and future careers. The CCAS Exploration Center offers computerized career planning programs, books and other reference materials, a video career library, and special-interest workshops held throughout the academic year.
