Frequently Asked Questions
What is an academic advisor?+-
An academic advisor is assigned to each student dependent on their major. The advisor collaborates with the student in curriculum guidance for major/minor and general education, monitors academic progress towards goals and graduation, interprets and explains institutional policies and processes, connects students to campus resources and removes the student’s advisor restriction so that the student can register for courses.
How do I get an advisor?+-
For incoming students, you will have an academic advisement appointment at the New Student Orientation. Once you meet with your advisor, your advisor restriction will be removed and you will then be able to register for the academic year, through Student Planning. Students will be assigned a permanent advisor, at the start of the semester. The advisor’s name will be listed in Student Planning, under the Advising tab.
How often should I see my advisor?+-
You can meet with your advisor as often as you like, within their schedule availability; however, you are required to set up an appointment at least once a semester, during the mandatory Advisement Period. This official period occurs in October, during the fall semester and usually March/April, during the spring semester (see Academic Calendar). It is an opportunity to discuss your current academic progress, finalize your courses for the next semester and discuss your major and/or minor requirements.
