What Should I Have Ready for Advisement?

First and foremost, you need to know why you are getting advised:

  • Is advisement mandatory? If unsure, click on the Do I Need Advising? link.
  • Do you have general questions?
  • Would you like academic assistance, but don't know where to go?

Next, you should look at your degree plan in Degree Works and make a tentative schedule for the next semester.

Finally, have your questions written down so you don't forget anything during your meetings.
