Academic Advising

All currently enrolled students are required to meet with their advisor during advising time. Current students cannot register without first meeting with an advisor.

The advising meeting is an important time to discuss course selection, class registration, and career pathways for a student’s chosen major.

  • Please print a copy of your midterm grades from Self Service and bring them to your advising appointment.
  • Students must contact the Advising Center to add or drop a class after a semester begins. Students will owe a minimum of 25% for courses dropped after the semester begins.
  • All students must meet with or contact their academic advisor prior to registering in Self Service.
  • Students who receive financial aid and register for a course not needed for a program of study will be subject to withdrawal and/or repayment of the tuition.
