Course Planning for Next Fall

Enrollment appointments, making you eligible to register for fall classes, will open up over the next few weeks.  (Check SPIRE to find your enrollment appointment; if you need more help, click here.)

While academic advising is MUCH MORE than a conversation about what courses you're taking, many students benefit from talking with an advisor about their course choices.  If you're undeclared, the courses you choose should be leading you to a point where you can make a decision about a major . . . which makes it all the more important to get good advice from an advisor.

In addition to making an appointment to speak with your advisor (on SPIRE, you will see your advisor's name or the office you should call to make an appointment - undeclared students call 545-2191), there are other options for you to get solid advice:


The Academic Advising Link (in the Learning Commons, downstairs in the W.E.B. DuBois Library, Sunday through Thursday, 4-8:00 pm) continues to be a great place to get basic questions answered. Bring your questions about different majors, Gen Ed courses and requirements, how to use SPIRE, etc.

(for undeclared students)

Walk-In will not be as involved as a full advising appointment, and it's first come, first served.  To see an advisor, you'll need to come prepared: be ready to talk about a possible major direction and have 3-5 possible course choices picked out, bring your completed Advising Checklist and check in at the front desk in 615 Goodell.

Friday, April 8th (11:00am-3:00pm)
Friday, April 15th (11:00am-3:00pm)


Remember, it's always a good idea to speak with an advisor about choosing your major, or other academic issues, opportunities and resources.
