Advising allows for students to meet with their academic advisor to discuss the degree requirements, review the student’s progress, and help students decide what courses they should take in the next semester.
There are no longer mandatory advising holds placed each semester. Advising holds will be placed on your account at specific milestones, and when you reach 45, and 90 credits (to ensure you are on track for graduation).
A Degree Completion Plan hold (DCP) will also be placed on your account when you reach 45 credits. Your Degree Completion Plan is your road map to graduation and helps you plan which courses to take and when. The sooner you start one, the better! Once you reach 45 or more credits, you are required to have a Degree Completion Plan on file with your adviser.
If you need help starting your Degree Plan, view our Degree Plan Video Tutorial.
Remember to bring or email your Registration Proposal and Degree Plan to your advisor. Keep a copy of all documents for your records.
