First Year Advisement Process

During their first year, students advised by the Center for Advisement and Student Success will meet with their advisor a minimum of twice a semester. Students will receive an email to their Mocs email address, instructing them how to select an appointment time.

Advisor and student

The purposes of these meetings are as follows:

Fall Semester

First Meeting

Meet your advisor to discuss the purpose of academic advising, your transition to college, adjustment to classes, and campus resources available to achieve academic success (i.e., tutoring, supplemental instruction, etc). Students will schedule their second meeting at this time.

Second Meeting

Students will speak with an advisor about major selection, course registration, and progress towards graduation. Once they decide on a schedule, the advisor will provide an alternate pin number which the student will later use to register for Spring Semester classes. Students can find registration instructions by clicking here.

Spring Semester

Third Meeting

Students will meet with their advisor to discuss the previous semester’s performance, adjustment to current classes, and campus resources available to achieve academic success (i.e., tutoring, supplemental instruction, etc). Students will schedule their fourth meeting at this time.

Fourth Meeting

As with the second meeting, students will speak with an advisor about major selection, course registration, and progress towards graduation. Once they decide on a schedule, the advisor will provide an alternate pin number which the student will later use to register for Fall Semester classes. Students will be advised by their major departments beginning their second year. During your spring semester advisement meetings, your C.A.S.S. advisor will prepare you to make this transition and provide contact information.
