The summer schedule of classes is due to be posted on Webadvisor in the next couple of days. Have you started thinking about YOUR summer plans?Now is the time to contact your academic advisor to discuss summer and/or fall classes. Summer priority registration begins on April 7. Priority dates are set by the number of completed credit hours. Check your ConnectMail for your opening registration date.
While the fall schedule is not available yet, you and your advisor can plan ahead and discuss course options for you. If you see your advisor now, you can avoid the hassle of meeting with someone over the summer.
You don't know who your advisor is? Your advisor's name and contact are listed in your Webadvisor account. Go to My Profile and scroll down to the name.
How should you contact your advisor? Each advisor has different preferences for the best way to contact him/her. You can email or call to make an appointment. Many advisors post a sign up sheet on their office door. Some advisors also use an online signup system. If so, they usually have instructions posted on their office door for how to access the signup. You can just stop by, but understand that it is best to make an appointment so you're sure to have the time and attention you need to get your questions answered. Depending on the advisor's time, s/he may be able to see you on the spot or s/he may need to ask you to schedule a time to meet. Please understand that, just as you have a class/work/family schedule, advisors have demands on their time as well and may not be able to see you without an appointment.
How should I prepare for my advising session? Think about what courses you want to take. Your advisor will probably also ask you about your future plans to help make sure your courses set you up for success. If you have recent test scores, AP scores, transcripts, etc that might not be recorded in our system yet, bring copies of those. This will help us know if you've met pre-requisites for courses you want to take. Finally, bring any questions you have. Your advisor may not have all the answers, but s/he can help direct you to the right people on campus.
