Advising Requirements

The advising staff is a team of professional academic counselors who provide assistance in planning programs of study, coordinating registration of courses, and providing guidance and referral services. While your academic advisor makes every effort to guide you throughout your education, students are ultimately responsible for developing a familiarity of and adherence to University and school policies and procedures. Students are expected to know the reuqirements for graduation through the information available in the undergraduate catalog. Students are encouraged to make an appointment with an advisor whenever they have a question or a problem or they do not know where else to go for assistance. Academic advising assists students with:

  • Selecting appropriate required, supporting, and elective courses.

  • Determining choice of the B.S. or B.A. major.

  • Addressing academic difficulties in coursework.

All students, except visiting and post-baccalaureate students, are required to meet with an advisor each semester to enable registering for courses in the subsequent semester. Students are also required to meet with an advisor for:

  • Advising on and referral to university resources.
  • Withdrawal from all courses.
  • Course schedule changes.
  • Leave of absence requests.
  • Transfer credit evaluation.
  • Course repetitions.
  • Program standing determination.
