Successful academic advising requires participation by both the advisor and advisee...
Students seeking advisement should:
- Make, keep and be on time for appointments with an academic advisor at least once a semester.
- Review the online class schedule, degree checklist, and course catalog to prepare a tentative schedule to discuss with your advisor prior to your appointment.
- Have substitute courses in mind when you go to meet with your advisor, some courses close, have prerequisites, or are not available at times convenient to your schedule.
- Get to know your advisor and let him/her get to know you. Advisors are valuable resources and can be of great benefit to you.
- Remember that it is your responsibility to remain knowledgeable of graduation and degree requirements. Do your best to accept responsibility for your academic decisions.
- Discuss your career goals and plans with your academic advisor.
- Consider completing your courses in writing and math as soon as possible so you can use these skills in other courses and avoid graduation delays.
