How to Get Advised

You should make an advising appointment as soon as possible after you receive notification advising is available. Students are required to meet with an academic advisor each semester before they can register. Please click here for appropriate dates.  We are open Monday - Friday: 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.

At your advising appointment you can expect your academic advisor to answer any questions you may have about your academic plan. Your advisor will suggest the best classes to get you to your goal as quickly as possible. We expect you, as the student, to be on time for your appointment and to be prepared with any questions that you may have. Click here for an Advising Checklist you may find useful in planning for your advising appointment.

We also provide email advising. To request email advising, click here: "Request Email Advising". Please include your Name, Major, U Number, Number of Courses you would like to take, and Names of Courses you are interested in taking. Please note that email advising typically has a minimum 48 hour turnaround, which can vary depending on volume.
