My Advisor and Me


Keep the following information in a handy place; inside the front cover of your student handbook is one suggestion.

Advisor's Name: _______________________________________________________ Advisor's Office: ________________________________________________________ Advisor's Phone Number: _______________________________________________ Advisor's Email Address: _________________________________________________

WHEN TO SEE YOUR ADVISOR

  1. Whenever you encounter any problems that affect your academic performance.
  2. When it is time to schedule classes for next semester. (As soon as the schedule for next semester's classes is available, work on your schedule, and then make an appointment with your advisor. Don't wait until the day before you schedule to suddenly drop by your advisor's office).
  3. Whenever you decide to drop or add a course.
  4. To discuss your academic progress.
  5. To discuss career considerations.

HOW TO SEE YOUR ADVISOR

  1. Be familiar with your advisor's office hours and schedule.
  2. Whenever possible, make an appointment instead of dropping by without one.
  3. If it is necessary to drop by without an appointment, try to do so at a time when your advisor has scheduled office hours, and allow plenty of time in case you have to wait to see your advisor.
  4. Because the first and last two weeks of each semester are the busiest for students and faculty, schedule longer conferences during the middle portion of the semester.
