Undergraduate Advising

Upon admission to the University every incoming student is assigned an advisor in academic counseling. Most students, however, have declared their major upon application and are therefore assigned a faculty advisor within the Department of Theatre & Dance. It is in the best interest of any undeclared major to get an advisor within the Department as soon as possible, rather than rely on a staff member in academic counseling.

Incoming Freshman who pre-register during one of the summer terms should note that the person who advises you at that time may not be the assigned advisor who will eventually work with you during your four year tenure in this program.

At this first advising session the student will be given a Plan of Study and a Course Sequence that will outline the classes needed to successfully complete the degree program and be advised for his/her first semester. The university no longer publishes Schedule of Class booklets, so information pertaining to class schedules is now found on My Memphis on The U of M homepage.

Thereafter, students will be made aware of the advising periods. At that time it is the individual’s responsibility to make an appointment to meet with his/her advisor for a brief session to assess his/her progress and plan the course work for the next semester. Students must come to these sessions on time and prepared—that is, with a completed class schedule in mind. It is also the student’s responsibility to keep an accurate, up-to-date copy of his/her Plan of Study.

Any pertinent information (i.e. telephone numbers or addresses) that has changed since the last advising session should be updated on a Major’s Information Form.

Please note: Since policies pertaining to graduation can change during a student’s tenure as an undergraduate, know that the University’s Undergraduate Bulletin for the year in which the student was admitted into the program serves as the official contract between the student and this institution.
