Student Responsibilities

As a student seeking advising, you should commit to completing the following tasks.

  1. Stay informed by reading academic policies, procedures, and other information in the catalog, schedule of classes, and departmental documents associated with your program.
  2. Request an advising appointment well before advance registration.
  3. Prepare for your advising appointment by reviewing degree progress on the degree audit online, following through on actions planned at prior advising sessions, and bringing a list of topics and questions.
  4. Develop academic and career goals, modify them as needed, and accept full responsibility for your academic choices.
