Academic Advising

It’s your first day back from Spring Break, but did you also know it’s also the first day of the Academic Advising Period? This means it’s time to set up a meeting with your advisor. If you don’t know your advisor’s name, you can find out on Navigator by clicking Student Home, then Academic Home and then View my advisors. With your advisor’s name, you can email them and set up an appointment to meet. Your advisor will be a member of the department you’re majoring in and they’ll be able to help you decide what classes to take next semester. It’s a good idea to come to your advising meeting with an idea of what classes you want and need to take in the Fall.  Even if you only know one or two of these classes, your advisor will be happy to see you’ve begun  to think about your Fall schedule, and is there to help you figure the rest out! It can be helpful to write down any questions you have about your major, your classes, or even location on campus and bring them to this meeting too. Your advisor will also give you the all-important access code that you’ll have to enter to in order to sign up for the classes you’ve chosen. Advising ends at the end of the month, but don’t wait to make an appointment with your advisor. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time to figure out a day that’s convenient both of you.  Once you have that out of the way, registration starts the first week of April!
