Academic Advising for CPLS Students
Academic advising is a critical component of the undergraduate experience. It is the process of developing a meaningful educational plan that is compatible with the student's abilities, values, interests and career goals. In achieving an academic degree, both the student and the advisor must share in the responsibilities. Academic advisors help students clarify their values, interests and goals and provide accurate information about educational options, requirements, policies and procedures
Advising Appointment Preparation
It is University of Memphis policy that every student be advised before each registration period unless a student qualifies to be cleared for more than one semester by their advisor. Academic Advising is available in-person, by phone and web conference. Appointments can be set through the Navigate Student mobile app, online through Navigate, or call 901-678-2716.
Students can prepare for their advising session by reviewing their course plan or approved baccalaureate contract as well as check the course schedule for the upcoming semester. To ensure successful advising, students are encouraged to read and keep all forms, contracts and materials provided by their advisor, complete all required forms and contracts by the designated deadlines, and monitor academic progress through various resources like UMdegree.
