Testimonials/Student Experiences

"I find advising appointments EXTREMELY helpful for keeping myself on track for graduation. My academic advisor let me know what classes I need to take and when to take them. I wouldn’t be on track without having scheduled advising appointments.”

Staying On Track Objectives

Here are several objectives that can help you stay on track throughout your four years of college and help you successfully obtain your degree and begin your career:

FRESHMEN

Before you begin your classes, make sure you understand and fulfill the technology requirements (PDF). As a freshman, you should begin researching majors or careers you are interested in, as well as, exploring student organizations.

TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS (PDF)

SOPHOMORES

By the time you begin your sophomore year, you should narrow your choices down to one or two majors. Throughout the year, we recommend you join and participate in a student organization and complete your pre-business requirements.

JUNIORS

Once you begin your junior year, it is advised you declare your major and possible minor. This is when you should secure your internship and confirm your course plan to keep you on track for graduation.

SENIORS

During your senior year, confirm your graduation plans (courses, GPA, application), and begin job interviewing or consider graduate school.
