I know you’re all still waking up from those late nights on spring break but it’s time to start thinking about fall semester! Next week marks the start of the official advising season, so in order to be prepared for your appointment I have a few tips to make you look totally organized.
· Refresh your DARS and take a look at your remaining requirements. This alone will make you look like a pro.
· Check out the Course Offerings Page to see what courses are being offered in the fall.
· Make a list of questions that you may want to ask your advisor.
· Consider your summer plans and goals beyond fall semester.
· Do your homework about the field you are interested in pursuing and come up with a plan for your next steps. This can be helpful to talk through with your advisor.
· Lastly, think about the present and how your current classes are going. If you are having any issues let your advisor know. Or, if you are doing well let them know. We like to hear the good stuff too!
