Antoinette (Toni) Moore is our Undergraduate Program Coordinator & Advisor and she is available to provide assistance to current and prospective undergraduate students regarding course offerings, enrollment, the major, the minor, petitions, transfer courses, how to get involved with research, and more! After consulting with Toni she may recommend that you meet with a Physics Faculty Advisor. In such a case, Toni will help you setup your appointment with the appropriate faculty member. Determine which advising option is best for you, then review our days & hours of availability.
