Staff advisors are on campus and available throughout the academic year. Take advantage and meet with your advisor several times during the semester.

Remember to have a copy of your degree audit and sequence chart with you.

During winter or summer breaks

Advisors are available during winter and summer breaks by appointment only. They may not always be in their offices as they tend to other responsibilities.

Continuing students should contact their advisor to schedule an appointment.

Those who have just completed their first year may email

During the add/drop period

Academic Advisors are available for drop in meetings during the first two weeks of the semester. During the add/drop period appointments are not necessary, but still encouraged.

Online Add/Drop

In the first week of Add/Drop, courses can be dropped and open courses can be added via WebAdvisor. To add a closed course, you must obtain an instructor's signature on an Add/Drop form and submit it to the Student Records Office.

Restricted Add/Drop

In the second week of Add/Drop, all courses must be dropped or added (with instructor's signature) on an Add/Drop form submitted to the Student Records Office. You don't ever need an instructor's signature to drop a course.

See Add/Drop/Withdrawal for more information.

After the add/drop period

After the add/drop period and before priority registration, advisors are available to talk about the following topics:

  • academic planning
  • course scheduling
  • course waivers
  • transfer credit
  • internships
  • independent study
  • study abroad
  • graduation
  • referrals & information about other college resources

Contact your advisor to schedule an appointment.

Preparing for registration

To prepare for priority registration, all undergraduates should connect with their advisor. Advisors will host academic-planning workshops and/or individual meetings in the weeks prior to registration.
