Your BFS / ISP Academic Advisor is your main source of information and advice on making the most of your experience in the BFS program. You are encouraged to contact your Academic Advisor as needed to ask any questions you might have about choosing courses, planning schedules, or taking advantage of Penn’s resources. Your Academic Advisor can simplify and clarify things as well as alert you to opportunities for special study.

Like all Penn students, BFS students should speak with their Academic Advisor at least once a semester until they declare their major, and then work with their Major Advisor (supplemented by Academic Advisor) throughout the remainder of their Penn career.
