Academics

Moving Along

You’ll need to see your advisor at least once a semester as you plan for each upcoming semester.  You’ll complete course registration yourself online via the WISER system.

Important:  You will need to meet with an advisor each semester to make sure you're on track with your degree requirements and to have your advising hold removed.  Check your WISER Student Center page to see who your advisor is.  You will have an advisor in the University Advising Center if you're undecided in the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Science and Mathematics or if you have fewer than 60 credits in the College of Management or the College of Public & Community Services.  Once all your holds have been removed, you will be eligible to register on the WISER system.  

What responsibilities do you have in the advising relationship? When you meet with an academic advisor, be ready to talk about your academic goals and to develop an action plan for any problems you are experiencing or decisions that need to be made.  Are you considering taking a course pass-fail or utilizing the course withdrawal option?  Do you want to explore ways to reach your full academic potential? Let's talk about all of that.  Come prepared to your advising session by exploring the university website to learn about your academic options, reading your degree audit in advance and bringing it with you to your advising session. 

A typical advising session is scheduled by appointment and lasts about 30 minutes.  At other times, when you have a quick question or urgent need, feel free to drop in; we offer frequent walk–in advising. You can also call your advisor, or send e–mail.
