Academic advising is a fundamental step in students’ education and an important tool in helping them through their academic growth.
Advising is mandatory for all degree-seeking students. You will not be able to access the registration system until you have met with your Academic Advisor.
Academic Advising: When & How
Academic advising appointments will be scheduled by the Registrar’s Office and will be held on the Friday and Saturday prior to the opening of the two-week registration period.
You will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office with the specific date and time of your advising appointment. You may not reschedule this appointment.
Academic Advising is more than picking classes
Academic Advisors assist students in developing their academic potential and exploring educational opportunities. Through the relationship established between advisor and student within a friendly, helpful, and professional atmosphere, students have the opportunity to:
- learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures;
- clarify educational objectives;
- plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and life goals;
Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree.
