      Once a student has completed PHYS:2703 - Physics III or is a third or fourth year major, they will be assigned to a Physics and Astronomy faculty member for advising. The student will be sent an email with the name of their departmental faculty advisor and the advisor's contact information.  For more information visit the CLAS Advising Network
