Handbook - Advising
Students are assigned academic advisors. Communication with your advisor
facilitates the completion of your program and can be an important
part of your education. Confer with your advisor and engage
in conversations about educational issues.

the catalog, class schedule booklet, and your program guide (prior to meeting with your advisor). Then schedule an appointment
with your advisor. Students are required to have their advisors
approval for registration each semester.
Any schedule change requires students to complete the appropriate
drop/add form; consultation with their advisor is required.
Deadlines and procedures are published in the class schedule.
