4. Prepare for your advising appointment

Print and bring with you a copy of your unofficial transcript (available in Student Admin.) Compile and bring with you a list of potential classes based on the following criteria:

  • You have the prerequisite for each class
  • You have the minimum number of credits required to take each class
  • The majority of the classes fulfill some Gen Ed or Major Requirements
  • The classes do not conflict with one another
  • The credits add up to 12-17 (if you plan to be a full time student)

Compile and bring with you a list of questions that may have occurred to you throughout the semester.  Advisors are here to answer your questions. They are not aware of what you already know and what you don't know yet so please ask questions to make sure you understand your requirements. Ultimately, you are responsible for knowing what your requirements are and completing them in a timely manner. Your advisor is simply a guide and a resource.
