ADVISEMENT AND REGISTRATION
WHAT IS ADVISEMENT?
Academic Advisement is the ongoing process of learning about your course and degree requirements, understanding college policies and procedures, and developing and implementing a plan to meet your academic goals. This process involves meeting with your academic advisor each semester or more frequently as needed.
WHAT IS REGISTRATION?
Registration is the process of enrolling in courses for the upcoming term.
Each semester a period of 2 weeks called Advisement/Registration is set aside for current students to register for the next semester’s courses. Students are strongly encouraged to speak with their advisor to register for courses that meet degree requirements. Advisors post office hours of availability, and students are encouraged to sign up for an appointment.
