Academic advisors are available year-round to meet with students. However, to ensure you have enough time to ask all your questions and to secure a schedule for the upcoming semester, it is ideal to set up an appointment in the middle of the semester. Please remember to be prepared for each appointment; write down a list of questions and have an idea of the classes you'd like to register for.

When to Meet With Your Advisor

Meet with your advisor for assistance with:

  • Major core requirements
  • University, college, and department requirements
  • Course eligibility (prerequisites)
  • Petitions (e.g., requesting to take extra courses = overload)
  • Degree worksheet updates
  • Academic standing/GPA checks
  • How to take a course at another institution
  • Study abroad, referrals for international programs, and how courses are placed into your degree program
  • Referrals (Honors College, career services for internships)
  • Repeating courses and effects on GPA
  • Graduation requirements
