Academic advising is a mandatory activity for all degree-seeking students that is held every semester: dates are available on the Academic Calendar. It is a requirement to register for the following semester: during the Fall semester, students register for Spring courses; during the Spring semester, students register for Summer Session I, Summer Session II, Summer Session II MINI and Fall courses. Students will not be able to register for classes until they have met with their Academic Advisor and cleared their accounts of any other additional hold. Students can check on their Online Registration System if they have any holds: once they have logged-in, they can see their hold log on the left-hand side of the page. If no holds are listed, their account is clear.
Students are assigned an Academic Advisor depending on their major(s): students pursuing a double major or double degree will be assigned two Academic Advisors, one per each major/degree. Academic Advisors will contact their advisees to schedule an appointment, during the two-week period that can be found on the Academic Calendar. Prior to their appointment, students are required to download a degree planner and complete it with the courses that they have already taken. They should bring the completed degree planner to their advising appointment, along with a copy of their unofficial transcripts.
By clicking on the different departments, students can find some useful resources, such as major and minor descriptions, and graduation checklists:
Students can access their Academic Advisor's personal advising page through the Academic Advising Center. If students do not know or are unsure about who their Advisor is, they should contact the Registrar's Office at [email protected].
