How does academic advising work?

All students will meet with their assigned academic advisor once each term. However, you can meet with your advisor more often if you’d like. It’s always OK to call, email or drop in with questions.

Students should schedule their appointments sometime around these holidays: Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Cinco de Mayo.

You can schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor online, 24 hours a day. Schedule your appointment early in the term, before your advisor’s calendar fills! An appointment can be made up to six weeks in advance.

You can expect your advising appointments to be about 30 minutes of one-on-one time with your academic advisor. You and your advisor will both prepare in advance — reviewing your MyDegrees page, preparing questions and looking ahead.

During your appointment, you will review your progress to date, make course plans for the upcoming term(s), discuss opportunities and resources pertinent to your goals, and track your progress toward graduation.

Although your advisor is here to assist and guide you, your educational choices are yours to make.
