In the Know: The Advising Relationship

Students are equal partners in the advising process. As an advisee, you are ultimately responsible for your academic and career decisions. Academic advisors are best able to assist you when you:

  • devote time and energy to reflecting on and clarifying your values, abilities, interests, and goals;
  • maintain contact with your advisor at relevant times during the semester (e.g. registration, midterm);
  • adequately prepare for advising sessions by reviewing the university catalog and course offerings; and
  • write down your questions to make sure you don’t forget to cover something important at your meeting.


Mark Your Calendar

September 12 is the last day to make changes to your schedule without a fee. If you are having difficulty in a class or have questions about alternative grading options such as withdraw, audit, and pass/fail, check with an advisor before making changes in UDSIS. Advisors are available from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm to see students on a first-come, first-served basis at the Center for Academic Success at 148-150 South College Avenue.
