Advising Info for Fall, 2016
All students are STRONGLY encouraged to meet with their advisor to discuss their registration plans prior to or during the Advising Period (i.e. well in advance of your registration time/date). Using your Academic Evaluation, you should have or create a long term plan which accounts for all of your remaining courses/validations and you should be regularly reviewing it with your advisor. This includes updating your graduation date by going to IOL and updating your Student Information. Please read all communication from your advisor and major department related to the upcoming registration period. Each department handles advising differently. If you have any questions, contact your advisor.
During Your Academic Career You Will be Required to Meet With Your Advisor at Certain Times
Two of those times are listed below:

1. Students moving to a faculty advisor are required to meet with their new advisor prior to registration.

2. Students signing up for an internship are required to meet with their advisor prior to registration.

Also, students on academic status are generally required to meet with their academic advisor. Please check IOL-Student Information from the Students menu to determine if you must meet with your advisor during the Advising Period.
In addition, students who need to discuss a General Permit Form, Permit to Take a Course Elsewhere, Independent Study Form, or a change of Major/Support Form, should also meet with their advisor to complete this information prior to registration.
