Advising sessions for pre-registration are generally as follows.

  • Spring pre-registration: late October
  • Summer and Fall pre-registration: end of March - early April

Students will be notified by e-mail with the exact dates of pre-registration. Materials for their advising session will be provided in that e-mail. Advisors will post sign-up sheets with slots for open advising sessions two weeks prior to pre-registration. Students will be required to sign up for an advising time with their assigned advisor. Students will also be required to bring a printed out copy of their degree audit. The degree audit will tell you who your advisor is in case you do not know.
