Advisment

Overview of Advisement

The goal of advising is to help the students to develop suitable plans for the completion of their degree program. The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about career goals and educational plans rests with the student. It is the responsibility of the student to understand and complete the requirements for the degree. The student, in consultation of the advisor, will construct a program that meets all departmental, collegiate and University requirements. The role of the advisor is to assist the student in planning, and to monitor the student's progress.

The advisor's written approval is a prerequisite for registration. It is very important that the student gets advised during the formal advisement period, and he or she comes prepared for advisement. In particular, the program should be planned bearing in mind the selected cognate/minor and whether the student plans to go into the 5-year program or graduate school. Also, the student needs to make sure that the courses planned for the semester are indeed offered and do not conflict.
