What is advising?

The primary focus of advising is to help a student plan their academic career by guiding the student as they select the courses appropriate for their career choice and aspirations. Advising also allows a student to engage in an in-depth discussion of their goals and plans. A student may be interested in study abroad, various student organizations or even an internship – an advising appointment is the perfect time to hold these discussions.

Students must meet with their advisor every semester to have their registration hold removed. You cannot register for classes without having this hold removed.
