Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have drop-in advising?

Yes! We offer drop-in hours for students Monday-Friday from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. for quick, advising related questions.

My student is struggling in his courses?

Encourage your student to make an appointment with their academic advisor to discuss their academic concerns. There are a myriad of campus resources for your student, including the Center for Student Learning or the faculty member directly.

What happens if my student is facing probation or dismissal?

Encourage your student to make an appointment with their academic advisor. The Office of Undergraduate Academic Services is also a great resource for support and information.

My student did not make a timely mandatory advising appointment. Will my student still be able to get courses for next semester?

Yes, your student will be able to get courses. However, his mandatory advising hold will not be lifted until after he attends his advising meeting. He can select courses at that time. Your student should keep in mind that desirable course times or topics may no longer be available due to his delay. However, there are always many other course options to consider, even if your student does not get his first choice.

Help! My student has no idea what he wants to major in and he’s almost a Junior!

It’s OK. Encourage your student to talk with his academic advisor or make an appointment with a Career Counselor in the Career Center to get the conversation started. Students can also attend the Majors & Minors Fair held every fall or attend a Choosing a Major Workshop.
