The academic advisor will also help the student complete and file a Degree Completion Plan by the end of their Sophomore year or first year after transferring in.

Prior to each Fall and Spring registration period, a Mandatory Advising Hold is placed on ever continuing undergraduate student’s account. The department holds advising periods in March and October. Students will receive notification of available advising dates via email and class announcements. It is the student's responsibility to seek an appointment during this time to receive registration guidance and to have their Mandatory Advising Hold removed.
All advising materials are meant as supplemental guides. Students should refer to their Academic Requirements Report for official requirements and completion status.
