Student Advising Resources
- Freshmen and sophomores must meet with an advisor every semester.
- Juniors and seniors must meet with an advisor once per year until graduation.
How to prepare for an advising appointment
Before scheduling an appointment, develop a sense of what needs to be accomplished in the advising appointment. Remember, an advisor can be seen more than once each semester, so accomplishing everything in one meeting may not be possible.
- If you have a roadmap, it should be brought to the appointment with you. If you are changing majors, new requirements will be provided.
- If semester scheduling is what needs to be accomplished, prepare a tentative schedule incorporating necessary prerequisites to discuss with the advisor. This may make it necessary to plan more than one semester at a time.
- Make a list of questions to ask during the appointment.
- Meet with an advisor early in the semester. The closer to registration or the end of the semester, the harder it is to get an appointment with an advisor.
